Special Notice to BLS Data Users

The Bureau recently modified our data-retrieval tools to address problems discovered during our recent database conversion. These changes have caused several unforeseen issues with the Series Report tool for data users attempting to retrieve Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) data. Mainly, the default HTML table format retrieving the selected series ID(s), and the column format option is not returning the appropriate data for the selected series ID(s). We have worked diligently to address both issues and have corrected both. Also, some functionality that was previously available in the Series Report tool was removed as a result of the software upgrades, we are working to restore this functionality as soon as possible.


We would like to take this opportunity to apologize for any inconvenience the recent software upgrades have caused.
