Redesigning Data Collection
Strategies for Cost-Reduction in
Two Bureau of Labor Statistics
Surveys
Michael A. Searson
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

June 2007
Quarterly Census of Employment
and Wages (QCEW) Program
Fed/State Cooperative Statistical Program
пЃ¬
пЃ¬

Program started with the passage of Federal
Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA)
BLS provides funding, deliverables, manuals,
guidelines, and methodologies to State agencies
States collect & edit data (decentralized
approach)
QCEW Statistics
th
4
Quarter 2006 Stats:
• 8.9 Million establishments
• 135.9 Million employment
• $1.516 Trillion Wages
3
Data Coverage
• 98 Percent of all non-farm
salary Workers in the U.S.
• 45 Percent of U.S. Agricultural
Workers.
4
Data Sources for the
CEW Program
• Primary
Administrative Records of the State Workforce
Agencies - UI Tax departments.
• Secondary
Supplemental forms designed by BLS to meet
additional program statistical needs. These
are administered by the State LMI staff.
5
QCEW Collection Forms
• Status Determination
• Quarterly Contribution Report
• Annual Refiling Survey (ARS)
• Multiple Worksite Report (MWR)
• Report of Federal Employment &
Wages
6
Status Determination Form (SDF)
• Used to determine an employer’s
liability for Unemployment Insurance
• Basis for initial assignment of
industrial, geographic and ownership
codes
• Mandatory for employers to file
• Initial source of UI Tax and physical
location addresses
7
Status Determination Form
Issues
Expected economic activities may change over
time
Limited space on SDF for:
- economic activity information
- physical location addresses (PLA)
- geographical location information
Increasing volume of SDFs
State staff knowledge
One-Stop Business Registration
- impacts access & quality of initial industry code
information

Purpose of ARS
Review and Update (if necessary)
• Mailing & Physical Location
addresses
• County code
• Single/multi-worksite status
• Industry code (NAICS)
9
Annual Refiling Survey (ARS)
About the Form:
• BLS designed (standardized)
• Mandatory in 23 States
• 1/3 of Universe reviewed annually
(historically)
• Sample based on 7th & 8th digit of EIN
• Verification System
• Minimum 75% response rate in units or
80% employment for States
10
ARS - Key Points
ARS updates are impacted by quality and
processing of SDF information

Survey Costs
• Printing - Forms, Cover Letters, Flyers
• Handling - Folding, Stuffing, Opening,
Scanning, Filing
• Postage
Out & Return
$ .41
$ .56
• Review
• Data Entry - Response code and updates,
if necessary
13
Strategy to Cut Costs
• Reduce scope of survey
• Stretch survey to 4 year cycle
• Touch-tone Response System (TRS)
• Contracting out ARS data collection
• Fax collection
• Web collection
• Central review by BLS staff
14
Three ARS Collection Forms
1. NVS – Single worksite accounts
2. NVM – Multiple worksite accounts
3. NCA – Unclassified accounts
15
ARS Scope Cutbacks
Recent budgetary cutbacks lead to the
following changes in the ARS Survey:
• Size cuts have eliminated businesses with 0,
1, and 2 employees from being surveyed
• Government accounts are not surveyed
• Private Households are not surveyed
• Move from 3 to 4 year cycle
16
Matrix Analysis Approach
Number of Alternative Survey Options
Evaluate based on “Boxes” Checked
Other Factors:
• Some alternative strategies may save $, but take a
long time to implement
• Some not so cost-effective but easy to implement
• Some strategies may require more follow-up for nonresponse, thus reducing total cost savings

Touchtone Response System
(TRS)
• Eligible employers have the option to
call a toll-free number to respond to
the survey
• Eliminates return postage and manual
processing and review
19
TRS Eligibility
• Single worksite employers
• Valid NAICS code
• Specific county code assigned
• Good physical location address

2002
- 6 test States

TRS normally accounts for 31% of total ARS
responses
TRS Lessons Learned
• System works very well
• States advise us via e-mail if respondents
indicate problem with TRS; few problems to date
• Touch-tone phones set to “pulse” mode, rather
than “tone” mode will not work with TRS
• Use of Cellular telephones by respondents can
create a problem
• States and National Office MUST be on the
same time line for mailing out TRS eligible forms

Central Annual Refiling Survey
(CARS)
• Commercial vendor prints cover letters, flyers,
and envelopes
• Inserts all materials and mails
• Opens returned ARS forms
• Sorts responses into different groups based on
employer responses
• Provide electronic files of responding firms (to
note receipt)
• Return ARS forms for states to review
• Use software to reduce outgoing postage costs
24
ARS Contracting Issues:
• All States mailing at the same time
would require additional TRS
equipment and phone lines
• Coordination with third-party
(contractor) increases potential risks
25
CARS Cost Reduction
•
•
•
26
Postage: Uses National Change of Address
and Mailstream refinement process- average
outgoing mail cost $.34. Normal postage $.41
Business Reply Mail (BRM) averaged $.45, will
be reduced to $.37 when High Volume QBRM
postal service is used. Normal fee as much as
$1.10
ARS Processing: CARS FY 07 processing
costs is $.55 per respondent (excluding
postage) to print, stuff, mail, receive, scan and
batch NVS (single) forms. This figure involves
three (3) ARS mailings, if necessary
FY 2007 CARS Changes
• All States used same (generic) TRS
Flyer to standardize printing
• Expanded from 12 to 22 States
• Tightened processing schedule
27
Future Plans
FY 2008
• Use generic state cover letters
• Expect to increase to 28 states
• Processing schedule shortened
28
Future Plans
FY 2009
• Imaging of returned forms with some
updates
• New contract to include printing of
NVM and NCA forms

Number. Please read across the row for each worksite and do the following:
п‚· NAME/ADDRESS/DESCRIPTION: Review the name and physical location address for each worksite and make any
necessary corrections. Review the description below the physical location to be sure it uniquely identifies each
worksite (plant name, store number, etc.). If there is no printed description, please enter a unique identifier for the site.

п‚· WAGES: Enter wages paid during the quarter that are subject to State Unemployment Insurance laws, including the
portion that exceeds the State's taxable wage base. Round wages to the nearest dollar.
п‚· COMMENTS: Explain any large changes in employment or wages. Changes might result from store closings, strikes,

(a) the date closed or sold; (b) if sold, the name of the company that bought the business at that worksite; and (c) the

lines or attach a separate page. If you are not sure how to report a worksite or employee, please call the office listed in
Step 5 of these instructions.

The information collected on this form by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the State agencies cooperating in its statistical programs will be used for
statistical and Unemployment Insurance program purposes, and other purposes in accordance with law.

Strategies to Reduce MWR Data
Collection and Processing Costs

• Expand collection to include more large, national
companies and move into medium sized employer
market
2. MWRweb
• Expand collection to include all States and small to
mid-sized multi-unit employers
3. MWR Paper Form
• Utilize a contractor to create a Central MWR
Processing Facility (similar to CARS) in FY 2009
• Use a scan-able type form for all “paper” respondents
45
Proposed Strategies
Continue work with :
• Payroll/Tax Software Developers
• Payroll/Tax Outsourcing Firms
- For inclusion of MWR electronic reporting in their
software or as a service for their clients
• Integrate ARS NVM survey with
businesses using MWR web Collection
46
Proposed Strategies for
Improving Industrial Coding
Improve Quality of Initial Codes for New
Employers
• Review State SDFs
• Review SDF procedures
• Pursue automated employer self-coding system
Goal:
• Assign correct codes at initial registration
• Only deal with actual changes in employer’s
economic activities
47
Summary
• Centralize data collection for both
surveys
• Use electronic collection where costeffective
• Use scanable type forms where
employer insists on paper reporting
