Wisconsin QCEW publication methods changed due to the implementation of a new processing system. The change impacted the suppression process. Suppression is used to protect the value of certain withheld data so that it is not discernable through simple calculations of other released data. The publication methodology change is effective with the release of QCEW data for the first quarter of 2022. For more information about suppression, see BLS Confidentiality overview.
