Number of Jobs with Percent Change Over Prior Year
Data includes average annual employment estimates as of the second quarter for years 2001 through 2017 from the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, and includes the entire city-defined Silicon Valley region. Data for Q2 of 2017 was estimated at the industry level by BW Research using Q1 2017 QCEW data and updated based on Q2 2017 reported growth and totals, and modified slightly by EMSI, which removes suppressions and reorganizes public sector employment.
Percent change from 2012 to 2017 is based on unsuppressed numbers. Percent change for prior years is based on QCEW data totals with suppressed industries. Percent change for 2017 was updated using Q2 reported growth.
