2021 Occupational Wages and Employment Statistics Data

These are the kinds of questions that the Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) data can answer. OEWS data provides employment and wage estimates for over 800 occupations in Missouri, as well as regions in the state. This data is produced in partnership with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics by conducting a survey of employers across Missouri.
