Employment and Payrolls


These tables are generated from statistics produced by Maryland's Quarterly Census of Employment Wages (QCEW) Program. They provide the reader with a basic industrial profile of Maryland's economy. The data are generated and published on a quarterly basis with totals for the state as well as each of its political subdivisions. Included are all workers covered by the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Law of Maryland and the unemployment compensation for federal employees (UCFE) program. Together these two account for approximately 98% of all wage and salary civilian employment. Since wage and salary employment represents approximately 93% of total civilian employment, this report covers over 91% of all civilian employment. The principal exclusions are cited in Source of Data.
