Elmore: Wage per job
Note: QCEW wages data represent the total compensation paid which includes bonuses, stock options, severance pay, the cash value of meals and lodging, tips, and other gratuities. For more information about the data please see: (https://www.bls.gov/cew/cewover.htm#Data_Available) The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of inflation. Here we adjusted dollar values by the CPI-U, which is the most commonly used CPI. Using the CPI to put dollar values in “real” terms makes it easier to see “inflation-free” change over time. Our base year is 2019, which means all dollar values are in terms of 2019 dollars. For more information, see (http://www.bls.gov/cpi/home.htm)
