These quarterly data series consist of gross job gains and gross job losses statistics from 1992 forward. These data help to provide a picture of the dynamic state of the labor market.

Oklahoma Business Employment Dynamics                                                 

Oklahoma’s economy is constantly changing as businesses open, close, grow, and contract. The Oklahoma Business Employment Dynamics (BED) publication tracks and explains these changes each quarter. By highlighting data at the establishment level, this publication provides economists, policymakers, and the business community with a more complete picture of how changes in individual businesses impact the state’s employment growth.

These reports are published on a quarterly basis. If you need additional publications, have any questions, or require additional information, please contact Monty Evans at (405) 557-5369 or by email:
