Description

This dataset provides final seasonally adjusted employment estimates for the State of Iowa. Iowa's estimate contained in this dataset is broken into the following "expanded" supersectors:
Goods-Producing: Construction, Manufacturing, and Mining and Logging
Service-Providing: Education and Health Services, Financial Activities, Information, Leisure and Hospitality, Other Services, Professional and Business Services, Retail Trade, Transportation and Utilities, and Wholesale Trade
Government: Federal Government, State Government, and Local Government
Seasonal adjusted estimates help eliminate sharp fluctuations in employment levels due to such seasonal events as changes in weather, reduced or expanded production, harvests, major holidays, and the opening and closing of schools. Adjusting the estimates to eliminate the seasonal events that tend to follow a regular pattern each year, make it easier to observe cyclical and other nonseasonal movements in the data. More information on the seasonal adjustment process can be found on the Bureau of Labor Statistics website: http://www.bls.gov/sae/790faq2.htm#Ques3.

Estimates for the State of Iowa are based on a sample of nonfarm establishments by month. More information can be found on the Bureau of Labor Statistics website: http://www.bls.gov/sae/sample.htm.
Limitations
Please note that employment estimates should not be summed for multiple months. If you are not grouping the data by the month ending date, then average, min or max functions should be used to summarize employment estimate data. Most current month data is considered preliminary.
