CES Data Tool

Current and historical data can be viewed and explored in the Tableau visualization below. Navigate the various tables by using the three tabs at the top of the frame. To customize the view adjust the industry, geography and time frame through the filters available within the visualization. The tables can be sorted by hovering over the column headings and clicking the icon that appears. The information is also accessible in a series of Excel files located in a drop-down menu at the bottom of this page.
