Update on economic data being released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor today issued the following statement about previously scheduled economic data:

"Because of the Oct. 1-16 lapse in appropriations, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has revised its calendar for releases. The updated schedule includes:

  • Usual Weekly Earnings of Wage and Salary Workers for the third quarter on Nov. 1,
  • 2012 annual report on Occupational Injuries and Illnesses on Nov. 7,
  • Employment Cost Index for the third quarter on Nov. 19 and
  • Producer Price Index for October on Nov. 21.

"A number of other reports also have revised release dates. For example, the September report on Regional and State Employment and Unemployment will be included in the publication of October data on Nov. 22. The September Metropolitan Area Employment and Unemployment report will be included with October data, and it is scheduled for release on Dec. 5.

"As previously announced, the Employment Situation report for October, originally scheduled for Nov. 1, will be released on Nov. 8.
