About the data
- The most current information is always displayed. Industry at a Glance (IAG) tables are refreshed every time a source program releases new statistics.
- IAG pages may contain different tables or levels of data because BLS programs produce differing levels of industry detail.
- Because the data are assembled from different surveys and programs, they may not always be directly comparable.
- Because of differences in survey methods, some data may cover all workers or establishments, while other data may only be for private industry.
- The NAICS structure is revised every 5 years.
- The NAICS 2017 implementation schedule shows planned conversion dates for each BLS program.
