	METROPOLITAN AREA EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT -- JANUARY 2014


Unemployment rates were lower in January than a year earlier in 367 of the 372 
metropolitan areas, higher in 3 areas, and unchanged in 2 areas, the U.S. 
Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Thirty areas had jobless rates of 
at least 10.0 percent and 41 areas had rates of less than 5.0 percent. Three 
hundred sixteen metropolitan areas had over-the-year increases in nonfarm 
payroll employment, 48 had decreases, and 8 had no change. The national
unemployment rate in January was 7.0 percent, not seasonally adjusted, down 
from 8.5 percent a year earlier.

Metropolitan Area Unemployment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Yuma, Ariz., and El Centro, Calif., had the highest unemployment rates in 
January, 26.1 percent and 22.0 percent, respectively. Midland, Texas, had 
the lowest rate, 2.9 percent. A total of 210 areas had January unemployment 
rates below the U.S. figure of 7.0 percent, 157 areas had rates above it, and 
5 areas had rates equal to that of the nation. (See table 1.)

Ocean City, N.J., had the largest over-the-year unemployment rate decrease in 
January (-3.7 percentage points). Ninety-one other areas had rate declines of at 
least 2.0 percentage points, and an additional 183 areas had declines between 
1.0 and 1.9 points. Yuma, Ariz., had the largest over-the-year jobless rate 
increase (+1.3 percentage points). No other area had an unemployment rate 
increase greater than 0.6 percentage point.

  | In accordance with annual practices, historical data have been revised in |
  | tables 1 through 4 of this news release. For detailed information on the  |
  | revisions, see the box notes at the end of the news release.              |
  |                                                                           |
   ---------------------------------------------------------------------------


Of the 49 metropolitan areas with a Census 2000 population of 1 million or 
more, Providence-Fall River-Warwick, R.I.-Mass., had the highest unemployment 
rate in January, 10.3 percent. Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos, Texas, had the 
lowest rate among the large areas, 4.7 percent. Forty-eight of the large areas 
had over-the-year unemployment rate decreases and one had an increase. The 
largest rate decline occurred in Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, N.C.-S.C. 
(-2.6 percentage points). Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor, Ohio, had the only jobless 
rate increase over the year (+0.2 percentage point).

Metropolitan Division Unemployment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Eleven of the most populous metropolitan areas are made up of 34 metropolitan 
divisions, which are essentially separately identifiable employment centers. 
In January, Lawrence-Methuen-Salem, Mass.-N.H., had the highest jobless rate 
among the divisions, 10.6 percent. Bethesda-Rockville-Frederick, Md., had the 
lowest rate, 4.6 percent. (See table 2.)

All 34 metropolitan divisions had over-the-year jobless rate decreases in 
January. The largest of these declines occurred in Detroit-Livonia-Dearborn, 
Mich., and Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, Fla. (-2.6 percentage points each). 
Twenty-three other divisions had rate decreases of 1.0 percentage point or 
more.

Metropolitan Area Nonfarm Employment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

In January, 316 metropolitan areas had over-the-year increases in nonfarm 
payroll employment, 48 had decreases, and 8 had no change. The largest 
over-the-year employment increases occurred in New York-Northern New 
Jersey-Long Island, N.Y.-N.J.-Pa. (+135,600), Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa 
Ana, Calif. (+129,800), and Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, Texas (+95,900). 
The largest over-the-year percentage gain in employment occurred in Ocean 
City, N.J. (+10.5 percent), followed by Napa, Calif. (+6.6 percent), and 
Greeley, Colo. (+6.1 percent). (See table 3.)

The largest over-the-year decrease in employment occurred in Albuquerque, 
N.M. (-4,100), followed by Peoria, Ill. (-3,400), and Charleston, W.Va. 
(-2,900). The largest over-the-year percentage decreases in employment 
occurred in Anniston-Oxford, Ala. (-3.7 percent), Danville, Va. 
(-3.2 percent), and Bloomington-Normal, Ill. (-2.7 percent).

Over the year, nonfarm employment rose in 36 of the 38 metropolitan areas 
with annual average employment levels above 750,000 in 2013. The largest 
over-the-year percentage increase in employment in these large metropolitan 
areas occurred in Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos, Texas (+4.5 percent), 
followed by San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif. (+4.4 percent), and 
Nashville-Davidson--Murfreesboro--Franklin, Tenn. (+3.7 percent). The only 
large areas that had over-the-year percentage decreases in employment were 
Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News, Va.-N.C. (-0.3 percent), and Pittsburgh, 
Pa. (-0.1 percent).

Metropolitan Division Nonfarm Employment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Nonfarm payroll employment data were available in January 2014 for 32 
metropolitan divisions, which are essentially separately identifiable 
employment centers within a metropolitan area. Thirty of the 32 metropolitan 
divisions had over-the-year employment gains and 2 had losses. The largest 
over-the-year increase in employment among the metropolitan divisions 
occurred in New York-White Plains-Wayne, N.Y.-N.J. (+107,200), followed by 
Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, Calif. (+91,100), and Dallas-Plano-Irving, 
Texas (+70,500). The only over-the-year decreases in employment occurred in

metropolitan divisions occurred in San Francisco-San Mateo-Redwood City, 
Calif. (+3.6 percent), followed by Dallas-Plano-Irving, Texas, and Fort 
Lauderdale-Pompano Beach-Deerfield Beach, Fla. (+3.3 percent each). The 
only over-the-year percentage decreases in employment occurred in Camden, 
N.J. (-1.0 percent), and Detroit-Livonia-Dearborn, Mich. (-0.7 percent).

Technical Note
 
 
   This release presents labor force and unemployment data from the Local
Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program (tables 1 and 2) for 372
metropolitan statistical areas and metropolitan New England City and
Town Areas (NECTAs), plus 8 areas in Puerto Rico. Estimates for 34
metropolitan and NECTA divisions also are presented. Nonfarm payroll
employment estimates from the Current Employment Statistics (CES)
program (tables 3 and 4) are provided for most of the same areas. State
estimates were previously published in the news release, Regional and
State Employment and Unemployment, and are republished in this release
for ease of reference. 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 layoff
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 states, the District of
Columbia, the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale metropolitan division, and
New York City are produced using time-series models with real-time
benchmarking to national CPS totals. Model-based estimation was extended
to the following areas and their respective balances of state in 2005:
the Chicago-Joliet-Naperville, IL Metropolitan Division; Cleveland-
Elyria-Mentor, OH Metropolitan Statistical Area; Detroit-Warren-Livonia,
MI Metropolitan Statistical Area; Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, FL
Metropolitan Division; New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner, LA Metropolitan
Statistical Area; and Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA Metropolitan
Division. (Model-based estimation of the New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner
metropolitan area was suspended following Hurricane Katrina; the
indirect estimation methods described below will be used for this area
until further notice.) Modeling improves the statistical basis of the
estimation for these areas and provides important tools for analysis,
such as measures of errors and seasonally adjusted series. For all
other substate areas in this release, estimates are prepared through
indirect estimation procedures using a building-block approach.
Employment estimates, which are based largely on "place of work"
estimates from the CES program, are adjusted to refer to place of
residence as used in the CPS. Unemployment estimates are aggregates of
persons previously employed in industries covered by state unemployment
insurance (UI) laws and entrants to the labor force data from the CPS.
The substate estimates of employment and unemployment, which
geographically exhaust the entire state, are adjusted proportionally to
ensure that they add to the independently estimated state or balance-of-
state totals. A detailed description of the estimation procedures is
available from BLS upon request.

   Annual revisions. Labor force and unemployment data shown for the
prior year reflect adjustments made at the end of each year, usually
implemented with January estimates. The adjusted model-based estimates
reflect updated population data from the U.S. Census Bureau, any
revisions in the other data sources, and model reestimation. All
substate estimates are reestimated and adjusted to add to the revised
model-based estimates.

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 2012 version of
the North American Industry Classification System.

   Method of estimation. CES State and Area employment data are
produced using several estimation procedures. Where possible these data
are produced using a "weighted link relative" estimation technique in
which a ratio of current-month weighted employment to that of the
previous-month weighted employment is computed from a sample of
establishments reporting for both months. The estimates of employment
for the current month are then obtained by multiplying these ratios by
the previous month’s employment estimates. The weighted link relative
technique is utilized for data series where the sample size meets
certain statistical criteria.

   For some employment series, relatively small sample sizes limit the 
reliability of the weighted link-relative estimates. In these cases, 
BLS uses the CES small domain model (SDM) to generate employment estimates. 
The SDM combines the direct sample estimates (described above) and forecasts 
of historical (benchmarked) data to decrease the volatility of the estimates. 
For more detailed information about the CES small domain model, refer to the 
BLS Handbook of Methods.

   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 for 
states, metropolitan areas, and metropolitan divisions at the total nonfarm 
level. For states, data are seasonally adjusted at the supersector level as 
well. In some metropolitan areas deemed large enough to be subdivided into 
metropolitan divisions, the seasonally adjusted payroll employment totals 
are computed by aggregating the seasonally adjusted total nonfarm estimates 
for each of the component metropolitan divisions. Revisions of historical 
data for the most recent 5 years are made once a year, coincident with 
annual benchmark adjustments.

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.

   Labor force and unemployment estimates. Measures of sampling error
are not available for metropolitan areas or metropolitan divisions.
Model-based error measures for states are available on the BLS website
at www.bls.gov/lau/lastderr.htm. Measures of nonsampling error are not
available for the areas contained in this release. Information on recent
data revisions for states and local areas is available online at
www.bls.gov/lau/launews1.htm.

   Employment estimates. Measures of sampling error are available for 
metropolitan areas or metropolitan divisions upon request. Measures of 
sampling error for states down to the supersector level are available on the 
BLS website at www.bls.gov/sae/790stderr.htm. Measures of nonsampling error 
are not available for the areas contained in this release. Information on 
recent benchmark revisions is available online at www.bls.gov/sae/. 

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. Data reflect New England City and Town
Area (NECTA) definitions, rather than county-based definitions, in the
six New England States. A detailed list of the geographic definitions is
available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm.

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 unadjusted and seasonally adjusted labor force and
unemployment data for states, census regions and divisions, and seven
substate areas are available in the news release, Regional and State
Employment and Unemployment. Estimates of labor force and unemployment
for all states, metropolitan areas, labor market areas, counties, cities
with a population of 25,000 or more, and other areas used in the
administration of various federal economic assistance programs are
available on the Internet at www.bls.gov/lau/. Employment data from the
CES program are available on the BLS website at www.bls.gov/sae/.

   p = preliminary. 
   NOTE: Data refer to place of residence. Data for Puerto Rico are derived from a monthly household survey similar to the
Current Population Survey. Area definitions are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 10-02, dated December
1, 2009, and are available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm. Areas in the six New England states are Metropolitan New England
City and Town Areas (NECTAs), while areas in other states are county-based. Some metropolitan areas lie in two or more
states. They are listed under the state that appears first in their titles. Davenport-Moline-Rock Island, Iowa-Ill., is the
exception in that it is listed under Illinois for operational reasons. Data for 2013 have been revised to incorporate
updated inputs and adjustment to new state controls. Estimates for the latest month are subject to revision the following
month.

   1 These 11 areas contain all of the 34 metropolitan divisions. 
   2 Part of the area (or division) is in one or more adjacent states.
   3 All of the division is in one or more adjacent states.
   p = preliminary. 
   NOTE: Data refer to place of residence. Area definitions are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No.
10-02, dated December 1, 2009, available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm. Areas in the six New England states are
Metropolitan New England City and Town Areas (NECTAs), while areas in other states are county-based. Some metropolitan
areas lie in two or more states. They are listed under the state that corresponds to the first city in their title.
Metropolitan divisions are listed under their metropolitan areas. Some divisions lie in more than one state, and some, like
Camden, N.J., are totally outside the states under which their metropolitan areas are listed. Three sets of metropolitan
areas and divisions have similar or identical titles. For Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va., the
metropolitan area and division titles are identical. For the Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, Mass.-N.H., and Chicago-Joliet-
Naperville, Ill.-Ind.-Wis., metropolitan areas, the division titles are similar but include only Massachusetts and 
Illinois, respectively. Data for 2013 have been revised to incorporate updated inputs and adjustment to new state
controls. Estimates for the latest month are subject to revision the following month.

Footnotes
(1) Area boundaries do not reflect official OMB definitions.
(p) Preliminary

NOTE: Data are counts of jobs by place of work. Data have been revised to reflect 2013 benchmark levels. Estimates subsequent to the current benchmark are preliminary and will be revised when new information becomes available. Area definitions are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 10-02, dated December 1, 2009, and available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm. Areas in the six New England states are Metropolitan New England City and Town Areas (NECTAs), while areas in other states are county-based. Some metropolitan areas lie in two or more states. They are listed under the state that appears first in their titles. Davenport-Moline-Rock Island, Iowa-Ill. is the exception since it is listed under Illinois for operational reasons.

NOTE: Data are counts of jobs by place of work. Data have been revised to reflect 2013 benchmark levels. Estimates subsequent to the current benchmark are preliminary and will be revised when new information becomes available. Area definitions are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 10-02, dated December 1, 2009, and available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm. Areas in the six New England states are Metropolitan New England City and Town Areas (NECTAs), while areas in other states are county-based. Some metropolitan areas lie in two or more states. They are listed under the state that appears first in their titles. Some divisions lie in more than one state, and some, like Camden, N.J., are totally outside the states under which their metropolitan areas are listed.
