  1. Where can I find a list of the Largest Employers in certain states?
    Use the State Profile to find the largest employer employer for any state. Select a state and then scroll down to the link for Largest Employers.

    Also note:
    • Some of the largest employers share building locations/addresses, but are recognized as separate employers because they have different names and tax IDs.
    • Chains, though they often share names, are recognized as seperate employers if they have different addresses.


  2. What is the source of the demographic information provided in the State Profile? How often is this data updated?
    The State Profile provides the following demographic information: Population, Labor Force, Unemployment Rate, Median Household Income, and Per Capita Income.
    • Population and Per Capita Income estimates are developed by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (via the Regional Economic Indicators System).
    • Labor Force and Unemployment Rates are produced by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (via the Local Area Unemployment or LAUS Program).
    • Median Household Income is produced jointly by the Bureau of the Census and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (via the Current Population Survey).
    The above listed demographic information is updated on CareerOneStop annually.

  3. Can you suggest other sources of State and national Labor Market Information?
    The NCS program is conducted by personal visits and can provide greater depth. The NCS occupational work level is based on the duties and responsibilities of the job. It provides information on the wages for the occupations it covers at specific levels of work, rather than just an average for all workers in the occupation. The NCS program provides information for the nation, for 81 metropolitan areas and 73 non-metropolitan counties representing the U.S. and for the 9 census divisions. It includes establishments with at least 50 workers. See NCS estimates.

  4. What is a State Profile and how do I use it?
    State Profiles provide a map, flag, Demographic Information, Occupation Rankings, State Information, and State Programs for each state. To create a profile, select a state on the State Profile page.

  5. What is the source of the "Largest Employer" information and when is it updated?
    The "Largest Employer" data is provided by Infogroup, Omaha, NE, (800)-555-5211. It is updated twice each year.

  6. How do I find education resources in my state?
    Use the options below:
    • Education resources are available in the State Profile. After choosing a state (and selecting to Continue), a link for State Resources will appear halfway down the page under the heading State Information. A list of the resources will result once the links is selected; a heading for Education resources appears halfway down this page.
    • Education resources are also available in the Occupation Profile. Education resources will only be included if you check the option to view Education and Training when creating a profile. Make selections on the proceeding pages. Links to education resources will appear under the Distribution of Educational Attainment table.
