    BLS CEW data is not complete coverage of employment. It does not include proprietors, military, elected officials, railroads, religious organizations or small farms. In your case, the relevant omission is that of proprietors (i.e., the self-employed). NAICS code 7111 includes independent (i.e., freelance) artists (see this link: http://www.census.gov/cgi-bin/sssd/naics/naicsrch?code=711130&search=2007 NAICS Search), which is likely the source of the discrepancy.
