Focus of the Position: This position works within Missouri's Current Employment Statistics (CES) program, which is administered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The CES unit is housed in the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center (MERIC), which is the state cooperative partner to BLS and the labor market information agency responsible for measuring labor market activity and the economy in Missouri. CES works with employment estimates, average weekly and hourly earnings, and average hours worked in nonagricultural industries, based on payroll records for non-supervisory workers. The data is used by federal and state government as indicators of economic health and by businesses for site location planning and labor contract escalations. The position will be responsible for monthly estimate reviews, annual benchmarking, as well as providing support to other BLS programs. Candidates interested in this position should be flexible and able to adjust as the demand and focus on work requirements shift based on program need.
What you'll do:

  • Keep abreast of employment and economic conditions in the state.
  • Review CES preliminary and final estimates monthly.
  • Transfer data via secure networks to BLS and other partners as required.

    Minimum Qualifications
