The BLS wage data are from the National Compensation Survey, Occupational Employment Statistics Survey, or the Current Population Survey. As such, you may also want to look into using IPUMS CPS.

We have not yet released the 2016 ACS 1-year data on IPUMS USA; it will likely be available around late November.
