Historical estimates of nonfarm employment, by industry, in Washington State.
Index of Washington State and labor market areas, 1990-2018
Each month, economists estimate monthly job gains and losses based on the survey of employers (CES). Then, at the end of each quarter, economists revise the estimates based on actual numbers from employer tax records (QCEW).
These boundaries represent the boundaries of the nine educational services districts in Washington State. ESDs were formed when individual County Superintendent of School offices were consolidated and reorganized to reduce duplication, equalize educational opportunities, and provide a more effective reporting and accountability system to the state legislature. ESDs link local public and private schools with one another and with state and national resources. ESD Cooperatives and programs enhance educational opportunities because they realize significant savings, allowing districts to send more dollars directly to the classroom and provide special services that might otherwise be unavailable to their regions. ESDs serve as regional liaisons between the State Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), State Board of Education, and the Legislature.

The Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) is the
primary contact for three historic registers (the National Register of Historic
Places, the Washington Heritage Register and the Heritage Barn Register) that
track Washington's historic and cultural resources.
The National Register of Historic Places is the official federal
listing of significant historic, architectural, and archaeological resources.
The Washington Heritage Register identifies and documents significant historic
and prehistoric resources throughout Washington at the state level. The new
Heritage Barn Register was established in May of 2007 and was designed to
specifically recognize agricultural resources in the state.
Each register is reviewed for listing by the Washington State Advisory
Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), which is comprised of citizens knowledgeable
in Washington's history, archaeology, and architecture. The nine member board reviews nominations to
the registers three times a year, at various locations across the state.
In Washington, the National Register is administered by the Department
of Archaeology & Historic Preservation (DAHP). Each nomination is reviewed
for listing by the WA State Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP),
which is comprised of citizens knowledgeable in Washington's history,
archaeology, and architecture. The nine
member board reviews nominations to the registers four times a year, at various
locations across the state.
In addition to the National Register of Historic Places program, DAHP
also administers the Washington Heritage Register. The Heritage Register
recognizes historically significant properties that for various reasons -
usually relocation or incompatible alterations - do not meet the higher
standards of National Register designation (all National Register properties
also are listed on the Heritage Register).
DAHP staff is available to assist with the initial assessments of
eligibility of properties to the registers and to provide guidance in the
completion of register nominations. For
more information contact Michael Houser, State Architectural Historian at (360)
586-3076 or email: mailto:Michael.Houser@dahp.wa.gov.
This dataset is an inventory of Historic Register Properties on record
at the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (http://www.dahp.wa.gov). These data are a
work in progress and are constantly being updated. More information about these
resources is available on DAHP's web portal WISAARD.
This feature service represents that boundaries of the nine educational service districts in operation within Washington State. Educational Service Districts are nine regional educational support agencies partnering with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to provide essential services for school districts and communities and to help OSPI implement legislatively-supported education initiatives.
