Methodology

Each month the Bureau of Labor Statistics analyzes payroll records from some 160,000 businesses and government agencies covering about 400,000 individual worksites. The active sample includes about one-third of all nonfarm payroll workers. The sample is drawn from a sampling frame of unemployment insurance tax accounts.

All payroll figures are for May of given year; 2007 figures are preliminary.
