Frequently Asked Questions
?What basic concepts are essential to understanding the OES survey?

"Establishment," "Industry," and "Occupation" are three key concepts. 

An establishment is the physical location of a certain economic
activity, for example, a factory, mine, store, or office. Generally a
single establishment produces a single good or provides a single
service. An enterprise (a private firm, government, or non-profit
organization) could consist of a single establishment or multiple
establishments. A multi-establishment enterprise could have all its
establishments in one industry (i.e., a chain), or could have various
establishments in different industries (i.e., a conglomerate).

An industry is a group of establishments that produce similar products
or provide similar services. For example, all establishments that
manufacture automobiles are in the same industry. A given industry, or
even a particular establishment in that industry, might have employees
in dozens of occupations. The North American Industry Classification
System (NAICS) groups similar establishments into industries. What is
the NAICS?

An occupation is a set of activities or tasks that employees are paid
to perform. Employees that perform essentially the same tasks are in
the same occupation, whether or not they are in the same industry.
Some occupations are concentrated in a few particular industries,
other occupations are found in the majority of industries.?

I hope you have found this information helpful.  If you have any
