NOTE: The CES (Current Employment Statistics) over the year employment growth estimates are based on independent state estimates. As such, CES rankings may be subject to substantial revisions at the end of the year. QCEW (Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages) data are published about seven months after the end of a quarter and subsequent revisions are less substantial than CES.
