About This Report

The 2019 job numbers come from the national 2020 U.S. Energy and Employment Report (USEER), which focuses on all energy jobs. The USEER analyzes data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) to track employment across many energy production, transmission, and distribution subsectors. In addition, the 2020 USEER relies on a unique supplemental survey of 25,000 business representatives across the U.S. Created and conducted by BW Research and approved by the Office of Management and Budget and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), this survey is used to identify energy-related employment within key subsectors of the broader industries as classified by the BLS and to assign them into their component energy and energy efficiency sectors. Numbers for 2020 come from BLS data analysis by BW Research and U.S. Dept. of Labor unemployment weekly summaries, used to calculate the labor impacts for the month.
