Bureau of Labor Statistics - Data Services Group

The Bureau of Labor Statistics is the principal fact-finding agency for the U. S. federal government in the broad field of labor economics and statistics. It has a dual role as the statistical arm of the Department of Labor and as an independent national statistical agency that collects, processes, analyzes, and disseminates sensitive statistical and economic data to the American public, U. S. Congress, other federal agencies, state and local governments, business, and labor organizations.

BLS data must satisfy a number of criteria, including relevance to current social and economic issues, timelines in reflecting today's rapidly changing economic conditions, accuracy and consistently high statistical quality, and impartiality in both subject matter and presentation.

The Bureau analyzes and publishes data from the Current Population Survey (CPS) on the labor force, employment, unemployment, and on persons not in the labor force. BLS releases labor force data each month in the news release, The Employment Situation.

The Data Services Group (DSG) uses TPL Tables to support the monthly publication of household data in The Employment Situation news release.
