    The series comes from the 'Current Employment Statistics (Establishment Survey).' The source code is: CES0500000003 The Average Hourly Earnings of All Private Employees is a measure of the average hourly earnings of all private employees on a “gross” basis, including premium pay for overtime and late-shift work. These differ from wage rates in that average hourly earnings measure the actual return to a worker for a set period of time, rather than the amount contracted for a unit of work, the wage rate. This measure excludes benefits, irregular bonuses, retroactive pay, and payroll taxes paid by the employer. Average Hourly Earnings are collected in the Current Employment Statistics (CES) program and published by the BLS. It is provided on a monthly basis, so this data is used in part by macroeconomists as an initial economic indicator of current trends. Progressions in earnings specifically help policy makers understand some of the pressures driving inflation. It is important to note that this series measures the average hourly earnings of the pool of workers in each period. Thus, changes in average hourly earnings can be due to either changes in the set of workers observed in a given period, or due to changes in earnings. For instance, in recessions that lead to the disproportionate increase of unemployment in lower-wage jobs, average hourly earnings can increase due to changes in the pool of workers rather than due to the widespread increase of hourly earnings at the worker-level.

  • 1982-84 CPI Adjusted Dollars, Quarterly, Seasonally Adjusted Q1 1979 to Q1 2024 (Apr 16)

    Data measure usual weekly earnings of wage and salary workers. Wage and salary workers are workers who receive wages, salaries, commissions, tips, payment in kind, or piece rates. The group includes employees in both the private and public sectors but, for the purposes of the earnings series, it excludes all self-employed persons, both those with incorporated businesses and those with unincorporated businesses. Usual weekly earnings represent earnings before taxes and other deductions and include any overtime pay, commissions, or tips usually received (at the main job in the case of multiple jobholders). Prior to 1994, respondents were asked how much they usually earned per week. Since January 1994, respondents have been asked to identify the easiest way for them to report earnings (hourly, weekly, biweekly, twice monthly, monthly, annually, or other) and how much they usually earn in the reported time period. Earnings reported on a basis other than weekly are converted to a weekly equivalent. The term "usual" is determined by each respondent's own understanding of the term. If the respondent asks for a definition of "usual," interviewers are instructed to define the term as more than half the weeks worked during the past 4 or 5 months.

In addition, several computational changes were introduced, including rebasing all series to December 2005=100 from June 1989=100, the introduction of new employment weights and seasonal adjustment factors.

    The January 2023 report presents the scheduled annual revision of the ADP National Employment Report (NER), which updates the data series to be consistent with the annual Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) benchmark data through March 2022. This is a recurring process that happens every year, and is a common practice for reports of this nature. In addition to this regular, annual update, the NER weighting methodology was revised to facilitate an easier comparison of total employment estimates between the NER and QCEW; monthly aggregates now leverage weekly seasonal adjustments rather than a separate monthly seasonal adjustment; and the national aggregate is now constructed from industry aggregates. There was also a refinement in the labeling methodology which is used to determine how various employment sources fall into a particular industry and geography definitions. These changes were applied retroactively to the 13-year history of the NER.
