Jobs and Income

The jobs and income section has personal income estimates from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis for states (quarterly and annual) and Maryland counties (annual). Jobs by place of work data from the U.S. BEA are available for states and Maryland counties annually.

Also available from this site are annual job estimates for Maryland (and other states) from the current employment statistics(CES) program. There is a difference in coverage between the BEA and CES data. The BEA series is more comprehensive in that it includes federal military, railroad, household, agricultural, and other workers not covered by the unemployment insurance system. In addition, the BEA data includes estimates of proprietors. As a result, BEA job estimates will always be significantly higher than job estimates from the CES program.

The County Business Patterns data on this site are an analysis of high tech and biotech establishments available at the zip code level.
