The Idaho Department of Labor has provided several extensions to the official OES data series (which have been developed in cooperation with the Bureau of Labor Statistics). These additional products have not been validated by BLS and are not, therefore, official BLS data series. The Idaho Department of Labor feels, however, that they provide additional information that is useful to the users of department data.
