CES employment includes the total number of people on establishment payrolls that received pay for the pay period including the 12th of the month. Both full and part time employees are included, as are temporary employees and those on paid leave. People on the payrolls of more than one business are counted at each establishment. CES employment excludes: proprietors, the self-employed, unpaid family or volunteer workers, farm workers, and domestic workers. Also excluded are those that were on layoff for the entire pay period and those on leave without pay. Government employment only includes civilian workers. CES estimates are based on a sample of Florida employers that are surveyed each month.
