Massachusetts occupational employment and wage data are derived from the Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics program, a program operated in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. The data are collected statewide and for seven Metropolitan New England City and Town Statistical Areas (NECTA's).

In addition, the Department of Unemployment Assistance produces occupational employment and wages for the Commonwealth's 16 Workforce Development Areas (WDA's) and nine Metropolitan NECTA Divisions. Though these estimates were produced using the BLS methodology, they are not official BLS estimates.

NOTE TO DATA USERS: As of April 1, 2019, the May 2018 survey data are available.
