       REGIONAL AND STATE EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT -- JULY 2012


Regional and state unemployment rates were generally little changed or slightly 
higher in July. Forty-four states recorded unemployment rate increases, two states 
and the District of Columbia posted rate decreases, and four states had no change, 
the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Forty-four states and the 
District of Columbia registered unemployment rate decreases from a year earlier,
four states experienced increases, and two had no change. The national jobless 
rate, at 8.3 percent, was essentially unchanged from June but 0.8 percentage point 
lower than in July 2011.

In July 2012, nonfarm payroll employment increased in 30 states and the District
of Columbia and decreased in 20 states. The largest over-the-month increase in 
employment occurred in California (+25,200), followed by Michigan (+21,800) and 
Virginia (+21,300). The largest over-the-month decrease in employment occurred in 
New Jersey (-12,000), followed by Missouri (-7,700) and Illinois (-7,100). Vermont 
experienced the largest over-the-month percentage increase in employment (+0.8 
percent), followed by Virginia (+0.6 percent) and the District of Columbia, Hawaii, 
Kansas, and Michigan (+0.5 percent each). Alaska experienced the largest over-the-
month percentage decline in employment (-1.0 percent), followed by Idaho, New 
Hampshire, and South Dakota (-0.4 percent each). Over the year, nonfarm employment 
increased in 41 states and the District of Columbia and decreased in 9 states. The 
largest over-the-year percentage increase occurred in North Dakota (+6.8 percent), 
followed by California (+2.6 percent) and Oklahoma (+2.4 percent). The largest
over-the-year percentage decrease in employment occurred in Rhode Island (-1.6 
percent), followed by Wisconsin (-0.8 percent) and Alaska and Missouri (-0.5 percent 
each).

Regional Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)

The West continued to record the highest regional unemployment rate in July, 9.4 
percent, while the Midwest again reported the lowest rate, 7.5 percent. Over the 
month, three regions experienced statistically significant unemployment rate 
changes: the Northeast (+0.3 percentage point), Midwest (+0.2 point), and South 
(+0.1 point). Significant over-the-year rate changes occurred in the Midwest, South, 
and West (-1.1 percentage points each). (See table 1.)

Among the nine geographic divisions, the Pacific continued to report the highest 
jobless rate, 10.0 percent in July. The West North Central again registered the 
lowest rate, 5.8 percent. Five divisions recorded statistically significant over-
the-month unemployment rate changes: the East South Central, Middle Atlantic, and 
New England (+0.3 percentage point each) and the East North Central and South 
Atlantic (+0.2 point each). Eight divisions had measurable rate changes from a year 
earlier, all of which were decreases. The largest of these declines occurred in the 
East North Central (-1.3 percentage points).

State Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)

Nevada continued to record the highest unemployment rate among the states, 12.0 
percent in July. Rhode Island and California posted the next highest rates, 10.8 and 
10.7 percent, respectively. North Dakota again registered the lowest jobless rate, 
3.0 percent. In total, 23 states reported jobless rates significantly lower than the 
U.S. figure of 8.3 percent, 8 states had measurably higher rates, and 19 states and 
the District of Columbia had rates that were not appreciably different from that of 
the nation. (See tables A and 3.)

Eighteen states had statistically significant over-the-month unemployment rate 
changes in July, all of which were increases. The largest of these increases 
occurred in Alabama and Alaska (+0.5 percentage point each). The remaining 32 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. (See table B.)

Seventeen states and the District of Columbia reported statistically significant 
unemployment rate decreases from July 2011, the largest of which occurred in 
Florida, Mississippi, and Nevada (-1.8 percentage points each). New York experienced 
the only statistically significant over-the-year increase in its unemployment rate 
(+0.9 percentage point). (See table C.)

Nonfarm Payroll Employment (Seasonally Adjusted)

In July 2012, nine states recorded statistically significant over-the-month changes 
in employment, seven of which were increases. The largest statistically significant 
job gains occurred in California (+25,200), Michigan (+21,800), and Virginia 
(+21,300). Statistically significant declines in employment occurred in New Jersey 
(-12,000) and Alaska (-3,400). (See tables D and 5.)

Over the year, 27 states experienced statistically significant changes in employment,
26 of which were increases. The largest increase occurred in California (+365,100),
followed by Texas (+222,500), New York (+113,300), and Ohio (+100,300). The only

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 levels 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 online at www.bls.gov/sae/.
