The graphic includes the Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program, which is a federal-statewide cooperative effort in which monthly estimates of total employment and unemployment are prepared for in the United States. The LAUS county data are estimated using a BLS prescribed multi-step estimation process, gathering a variety of information including, CES survey data, agricultural employment, and unemployment claims data for local areas. The estimates of the state’s employment/unemployment are adjusted so that all areas add to the statewide total. The data in the graphic reflects on the county where the person lives.
1. The reason why I chose this article is because San Diego County’s unemployment rate was 3.3 percent in October, up from 3.2 percent in September, according to the data released by the State’s Employment Development Department (EDD). Some companies may simply be unable to fill jobs because qualified workers don’t want to move to San Diego with its tight housing market and lower wages than might be available elsewhere. The unadjusted unemployment rate was 4.0 percent statewide and 3.5 percent for the entire U.S. over the same period. Total jobs in construction, financial services (particularly insurance carriers), administrative support and health care employment decreased by roughly 2500 jobs. While on the other hand, there was increases in transportation, manufacturing, tourism and government employment, according to EDD data.
