Enhancements to BLS OES (Occupational Employment Statistics) Data Handling

OES data is not technically maintained as time series data by the BLS. Nevertheless, dataZoa has always been capable of constructing time series out of the individual yearly observations. Until recently, the dataZoa was able to reach back as far as five years, but no further. Recent changes now allow for considerable enhancement.


  • dataZoa will now pull together OES series as far back as 1999.
  • We have migrated the date time-stamps of the yearly observations from from mid-year (May) to start-of-year (Jan) to be consistent with the BLS, which does not mark the month at all.
  • Relatedly, the November updates that happened in a few years are now also attriuted to start-of-year (Jan) to be consistent with the BLS.
  • A number of meta-data fields (such as the various occupation and area codes) are now explicit in the data rather than simply left in the data titles.
