    REGIONAL AND STATE EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT -- FEBRUARY 2012


Regional and state unemployment rates were little changed in February.
Twenty-nine states recorded unemployment rate decreases, 8 states posted
rate increases, and 13 states and the District of Columbia had no change,
the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Forty-nine states and
the District of Columbia registered unemployment rate decreases from a
year earlier, while only one state experienced an increase. The national
jobless rate was unchanged from January at 8.3 percent but was 0.7 percentage
point lower than in February 2011.

In February, nonfarm payroll employment increased in 42 states and the
District of Columbia and decreased in 8 states. The largest over-the-month
increase in employment occurred in Ohio (+28,300), followed by Texas
(+27,900) and New York (+24,700). The largest over-the-month decrease
in employment occurred in Nevada (-12,800), followed by Georgia (-8,300),
Oregon (-6,400), and Kansas (-5,700). North Dakota experienced the largest
over-the-month percentage increase in employment (+1.3 percent), followed
by Alaska and Wyoming (+0.7 percent each). Nevada experienced the largest
over-the-month percentage decline in employment (-1.1 percent), followed
by New Hampshire (-0.6 percent). Over the year, nonfarm employment increased
in 43 states and the District of Columbia and decreased in 7 states. The
largest over-the-year percentage increase occurred in North Dakota 
(+6.8 percent). The largest over-the-year percentage decrease in employment
occurred in Wisconsin (-0.6 percent).

Regional Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)

The West continued to record the highest regional unemployment rate in
February, 9.6 percent, while the Midwest again reported the lowest
rate, 7.5 percent. Over the month, the Midwest and South experienced
statistically significant unemployment rate changes (-0.2 percentage
point each). Over the year, the West registered the largest of three
measurable rate changes (-1.0 percentage point), followed by the Midwest
and South (-0.9 point each). (See table 1.)

Among the nine geographic divisions, the Pacific continued to report the
highest jobless rate, 10.2 percent in February. The West North Central
again registered the lowest rate, 5.9 percent. Two divisions experienced
statistically significant unemployment rate changes over the month:
the East North Central (-0.2 percentage point) and South Atlantic 
(-0.1 point). Eight divisions had measurable unemployment rate declines
from a year earlier, the largest of which occurred in the East South Central
(-1.4 percentage points). No division recorded an unemployment rate
increase from February 2011.

State Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)

Nevada continued to record the highest unemployment rate among the states,
12.3 percent in February. Rhode Island and California posted the next
highest rates, 11.0 and 10.9 percent, respectively. North Dakota again
registered the lowest jobless rate, 3.1 percent, followed by Nebraska,
4.0 percent. In total, 23 states reported jobless rates significantly
lower than the U.S. figure of 8.3 percent, 6 states and the District
of Columbia had measurably higher rates, and 21 states had rates that
were not appreciably different from that of the nation.
(See tables A and 3.)

Mississippi and Nevada experienced the largest over-the-month
unemployment rate declines in February (-0.5 and -0.4 percentage
point, respectively). Five other states also had statistically
significant rate decreases: Illinois, Indiana, Montana, and North
Carolina (-0.3 percentage point each) and Florida (-0.2 point). The
only significant rate increase was recorded in New York (+0.2 percentage
point). The remaining 42 states and the District of Columbia recorded
jobless rates that were not measurably different from those of a month
earlier, though some had changes that were at least as large numerically
as the significant changes.

Michigan registered the largest jobless rate decrease from February 2011
(-1.9 percentage points), followed by Alabama (-1.7 points). Nineteen
additional states reported smaller but also statistically significant
declines over the year. The remaining 29 states and the District of
Columbia recorded unemployment rates that were not appreciably different
from those of a year earlier. (See table B.)

Nonfarm Payroll Employment (Seasonally Adjusted)

In February, 17 states recorded statistically significant over-the-month
changes in employment, 13 of which were increases. The largest statistically
significant job gains occurred in Ohio (+28,300), Texas (+27,900), and
New York (+24,700). The largest statistically significant decline in
employment occurred in Nevada (-12,800), followed by Oregon (-6,400) and
Kansas (-5,700). (See tables C and 5.)

Over the year, 28 states experienced statistically significant changes in
employment, all of which were increases. The largest increase occurred in
Texas (+273,900), followed by New York (+141,300) and California (+127,300).
(See table D.)

Technical Note

   This release presents labor force and unemployment data for census
regions and divisions, states, and selected substate areas from the
Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program (tables 1 to 4). Also
presented are nonfarm payroll employment estimates by state and major
industry sector from the Current Employment Statistics (CES) program
(tables 5 and 6). The LAUS and CES programs are both federal-state
cooperative endeavors.

Labor force and unemployment--from the LAUS program

   Definitions. The labor force and unemployment data are based on the
same concepts and definitions as those used for the official national
estimates obtained from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a sample
survey of households that is conducted for the Bureau of Labor Statistics
(BLS) by the U.S. Census Bureau. The LAUS program measures employment
and unemployment on a place-of-residence basis. The universe for each
is the civilian noninstitutional population 16 years of age and over.
Employed persons are those who did any work at all for pay or profit in
the reference week (the week including the 12th of the month) or worked
15 hours or more without pay in a family business or farm, plus those
not working who had a job from which they were temporarily absent, whether
or not paid, for such reasons as labor-management dispute, illness, or
vacation. Unemployed persons are those who were not employed during the
reference week (based on the definition above), had actively looked for a
job sometime in the 4-week period ending with the reference week, and
were currently available for work; persons on lay-off expecting recall
need not be looking for work to be counted as unemployed. The labor force
is the sum of employed and unemployed persons. The unemployment rate is
the number of unemployed as a percent of the labor force.

   Method of estimation. Estimates for 48 of the 50 states, the District
of Columbia, the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale metropolitan division,
New York City, and the balances of California and New York State are
produced using estimating equations based on regression techniques. This
method, which underwent substantial enhancement at the beginning of 2005,
utilizes data from several sources, including the CPS, the CES, and state
unemployment insurance (UI) programs. Estimates for the state of California
are derived by summing the estimates for the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale
metropolitan division and the balance of California. Similarly, estimates
for New York State are derived by summing the estimates for New York City and
the balance of New York State. Estimates for all nine census divisions and
the five additional substate areas contained in this release (the Cleveland-
Elyria-Mentor and Detroit-Warren-Livonia metropolitan areas and the Chicago-
Joliet-Naperville, Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, and Seattle-Bellevue-Everett 
metropolitan divisions) and their respective balances of state are based on a
similar regression approach that does not incorporate CES or UI data. Estimates
for census regions are obtained by summing the model-based estimates for the
component divisions and then calculating the unemployment rate. Each month,
census division estimates are controlled to national totals; state estimates
are then controlled to their respective division totals. Substate and
balance-of-state estimates for the five areas noted above are controlled
to their respective state totals. Estimates for Puerto Rico are derived from
a monthly household survey similar to the CPS. A detailed description of
the estimation procedures is available from BLS upon request.

   Annual revisions. Labor force and unemployment data for prior years reflect
adjustments made at the end of each year. The adjusted estimates reflect updated
population data from the U.S. Census Bureau, any revisions in the other data
sources, and model reestimation. In most years, historical data for the most
recent five years (both seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted) are
revised near the beginning of each calendar year, prior to the release of January
estimates.

   Seasonal adjustment. The LAUS program introduced smoothed seasonally adjusted
(SSA) estimates in January 2010. These are seasonally-adjusted data that have
incorporated a long-run trend smoothing procedure, resulting in estimates that
are less volatile than those previously produced. The estimates are smoothed using
a Henderson Trend Filter (H13). The H13 uses a filtering procedure, based on moving
averages, to remove the irregular fluctuations from the seasonally-adjusted series,
leaving the trend. The same process is used on both historical and current year
estimates. For more information about the smoothing technique, see the BLS Web
site at www.bls.gov/lau/lassaqa.htm.

   Area definitions. The substate area data published in this release reflect
the standards and definitions established by the U.S. Office of Management and
Budget on December 1, 2009. A detailed list of the geographic definitions is
available on the Internet at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm.

Employment--from the CES program

   Definitions. Employment data refer to persons on establishment payrolls who
receive pay for any part of the pay period that includes the 12th of the month.
Persons are counted at their place of work rather than at their place of residence;
those appearing on more than one payroll are counted on each payroll. Industries
are classified on the basis of their principal activity in accordance with the
2007 version of the North American Industry Classification System.

   Method of estimation. The employment data are estimated using a "link relative"
technique in which a ratio (link relative) of current-month employment to that of
the previous month is computed from a sample of establishments reporting for
both months. The estimates of employment for the current month are obtained by
multiplying the estimates for the previous month by these ratios. Small-domain
models are used as the official estimators for the approximately 39 percent of
CES published series which have insufficient sample for direct sample-based
estimates.

   Annual revisions. Employment estimates are adjusted annually to a complete
count of jobs, called benchmarks, derived principally from tax reports that are
submitted by employers who are covered under state unemployment insurance (UI)
laws. The benchmark information is used to adjust the monthly estimates between
the new benchmark and the preceding one and also to establish the level of 
employment for the new benchmark month. Thus, the benchmarking process establishes
the level of employment, and the sample is used to measure the month-to-month
changes in the level for the subsequent months.

   Seasonal adjustment. Payroll employment data are seasonally adjusted at the
statewide supersector level. In some states, the seasonally adjusted payroll 
employment total is computed by aggregating the independently adjusted supersector
series. In other states, the seasonally adjusted payroll employment total is 
independently adjusted. Revisions of historical data for the most recent 5 years
are made once a year, coincident with annual benchmark adjustments.

   Caution on aggregating state data. State estimation procedures are designed
to produce accurate data for each individual state. BLS independently develops a
national employment series; state estimates are not forced to sum to national
totals. Because each state series is subject to larger sampling and nonsampling
errors than the national series, summing them cumulates individual state level
errors and can cause significant distortions at an aggregate level. Due to these
statistical limitations, BLS does not compile a "sum-of-states" employment series,
and cautions users that such a series is subject to a relatively large and volatile
error structure.

Reliability of the estimates

   The estimates presented in this release are based on sample surveys, 
administrative data, and modeling and, thus, are subject to sampling and other 
types of errors. Sampling error is a measure of sampling variability--that is,
variation that occurs by chance because a sample rather than the entire population
is surveyed. Survey data also are subject to nonsampling errors, such as those
which can be introduced into the data collection and processing operations.
Estimates not directly derived from sample surveys are subject to additional
errors resulting from the specific estimation processes used. The sums of
individual items may not always equal the totals shown in the same tables because
of rounding. Unemployment rates are computed from unrounded data and thus may
differ slightly from rates computed using the rounded data displayed in the tables.

   Use of error measures. In 2005, the LAUS program introduced several improvements
to its methodology. Among these were the development of model-based error measures
for the monthly estimates and the estimates of over-the-month changes. The introductory
section of this release preserves the long-time practice of highlighting the direction
of the movements in regional and state unemployment rates and state nonfarm payroll
employment regardless of their statistical significance. The remainder of the analysis
in the release takes statistical significance into consideration.

   Labor force and unemployment estimates. Model-based error measures for 
seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted data and for over-the-month
and over-the-year changes are available online at www.bls.gov/lau/lastderr.htm.
BLS uses a 90-percent confidence level in determining whether changes in LAUS
unemployment rates are statistically significant. The average magnitude of the
current year over-the-month change in a state unemployment rate that is required
for statistical significance at the 90-percent confidence level is just over
0.2 percentage point; the average amount of the current over-the-year change in
a state rate for significance is about 0.9 point. More details can be found on 
the Web site. Measures of nonsampling error are not available, but additional
information on the subject is provided in Employment and Earnings Online at
www.bls.gov/opub/ee/home.htm.

   Employment estimates. Measures of sampling error for state CES data at the total
nonfarm and supersector level and for metropolitan area CES data at the total nonfarm
level are available online at www.bls.gov/sae/790stderr.htm. BLS uses a 90-percent
confidence level in determining whether changes in CES employment levels are
statistically significant. Information on recent benchmark revisions for states is
available on the Internet at www.bls.gov/sae/.

Additional information

   More complete information on the technical procedures used to develop these
estimates and additional data appear in Employment and Earnings Online.

   Estimates of labor force and unemployment from the LAUS program, as well as
nonfarm employment from the CES program, for 380 metropolitan areas and metropolitan
New England City and Town Areas (NECTAs) are available in the news release, Metropolitan
Area Employment and Unemployment. Estimates of labor force, employment, and unemployment
for approximately 7,300 subnational areas are available on the Internet at www.bls.gov/lau/.
Employment data from the CES program for states and metropolitan areas are available
on the Internet at www.bls.gov/sae/.
