Corrections to Extended Mass Layoff Statistics Data

Because of a data processing error related to rounding, a small number of historical values for different demographic characteristics, shown as percentages of total private nonfarm mass layoff initial claimants, were incorrectly published in the BLS database. Also, annual totals for 2001 were mistakenly published in the BLS database for three series, even though data for those series were only available for the third and fourth quarters of 2001.

The following corrections were published on February 14, 2013:
