         METROPOLITAN AREA EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT -- JANUARY 2012


Unemployment rates were lower in January than a year earlier in 345 of the 372 
metropolitan areas, higher in 16 areas, and unchanged in 11 areas, the U.S. Bureau 
of Labor Statistics reported today. Thirteen areas recorded jobless rates of at 
least 15.0 percent, and 13 areas registered rates of less than 5.0 percent. Two 
hundred seventy metropolitan areas reported over-the-year increases in nonfarm 
payroll employment, 94 reported decreases, and 8 had no change. The national
unemployment rate in January was 8.8 percent, not seasonally adjusted, down from
9.8 percent a year earlier.

Metropolitan Area Unemployment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

In January, 86 metropolitan areas reported jobless rates of at least 10.0 percent,
down from 150 areas a year earlier, while 83 areas posted rates below 7.0 percent,
up from 47 areas in January 2011. El Centro, Calif., and Yuma, Ariz., recorded the
highest unemployment rates in January 2012, 26.4 and 24.5 percent, respectively. Ten 
of the other 11 areas with jobless rates of at least 15.0 percent were located in 
California. Bismarck, N.D., and Lincoln, Neb., registered the lowest unemployment
rates, 3.8 percent each. A total of 201 areas recorded January unemployment rates
below the U.S. figure of 8.8 percent, 162 areas reported rates above it, and 9 areas
had rates equal to that of the nation. (See table 1.)

The largest over-the-year unemployment rate decreases in January were registered in
Decatur, Ala. (-3.2 percentage points), and Monroe, Mich. (-2.8 points). Twenty-five
other areas recorded rate declines of 2.0 percentage points or more, and an 
additional 170 areas had decreases of between 1.0 and 1.9 points. Lawton, Okla., and 
Yuma, Ariz., reported the largest over-the-year jobless rate increases 
(+1.0 percentage point each).

   |                                                                         |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------


Of the 49 metropolitan areas with a Census 2000 population of 1 million or more, the
highest unemployment rates in January were registered in Las Vegas-Paradise, Nev., 
13.1 percent, and Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, Calif., 12.4 percent. Five 
additional large areas posted rates of 10.0 percent or more. The lowest jobless 
rates among the large areas were recorded in Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, 
D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va., 5.7 percent, and Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, Minn.-Wis., 
and Oklahoma City, Okla., 5.9 percent each. Forty-six of the large areas reported 
over-the-year unemployment rate decreases, while one area registered an increase and 
two had no change. Kansas City, Mo.-Kan., experienced the largest unemployment rate 
decline from January 2011 (-2.1 percentage points), followed by Detroit-Warren-
Livonia, Mich., and Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Fla. (-1.8 points each). The 
only over-the-year jobless rate increase in a large area was marginal 
(+0.1 percentage point in New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, N.Y.-N.J.-Pa.).

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 2012, Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, Calif., registered the highest 
jobless rate among the divisions, 12.1 percent. Bethesda-Rockville-Frederick, Md., 
reported the lowest division rate, 5.2 percent. (See table 2.)

Thirty-one of the metropolitan divisions recorded over-the-year jobless rate 
decreases in January, while one division registered an increase and two had no 
change. Warren-Troy-Farmington Hills, Mich., posted the largest rate decline from a 
year earlier (-1.9 percentage points). Twelve other divisions reported rate 
decreases of 1.0 percentage point or more. New York-White Plains-Wayne, N.Y.-N.J., 
experienced the only unemployment rate increase from a year earlier 
(+0.4 percentage point).

In 4 of the 11 metropolitan areas that contain divisions, the ranges between the 
highest and lowest division jobless rates were 2.0 percentage points or more in 
January. Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, Mass.-N.H., recorded the largest rate difference 
among its divisions, 6.2 percentage points (Lawrence-Methuen-Salem, Mass.-N.H., 11.9 
percent, compared with Framingham, Mass., 5.7 percent).

Metropolitan Area Nonfarm Employment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

In January, 270 metropolitan areas reported over-the-year increases in nonfarm 
payroll employment, 94 reported decreases, and 8 had no change. The largest over-
the-year employment increase occurred in New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, 
N.Y.-N.J.-Pa. (+121,300), followed by Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, Texas (+94,700), 
Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, Texas (+69,700), and Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, 
Ga. (+68,400). The largest over-the-year percentage gain in employment was reported 
in Ocean City, N.J. (+12.9 percent), followed by Columbus, Ind. (+11.0 percent), and
Odessa, Texas (+9.1 percent). (See table 3.)

The largest over-the-year decreases in employment occurred in Fort Smith, Ark.-Okla.
(-6,400), Sacramento--Arden-Arcade--Roseville, Calif. (-5,100), and Ithaca, N.Y.
(-3,500). The largest over-the-year percentage decreases in employment were reported
in Fort Smith, Ark.-Okla., and Ithaca, N.Y. (-5.6 percent each), and Elmira, N.Y. 
(-3.8 percent).

Over the year, nonfarm employment rose in 33 of the 37 metropolitan areas with 
annual average employment levels above 750,000 in 2011. The largest over-the-year 
percentage increase in employment in these large metropolitan areas was posted in 
Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, Texas (+3.7 percent), followed by Austin-Round Rock-San 
Marcos, Texas (+3.5 percent), and Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, Ga. (+3.1 percent). 
The largest over-the-year percentage decrease in employment occurred in 
Sacramento--Arden-Arcade--Roseville, Calif. (-0.6 percent), followed by Cleveland-
Elyria-Mentor, Ohio (-0.3 percent), and Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis, Wis. 
(-0.2 percent).

Metropolitan Division Nonfarm Employment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Nonfarm payroll employment data were available in January 2012 for 32 metropolitan 
divisions, which are essentially separately identifiable employment centers within a 
metropolitan area. Twenty-eight of the 32 metropolitan divisions reported over-the-
year employment gains, while 4 reported losses. The largest over-the-year increases 
in the metropolitan divisions occurred in New York-White Plains-Wayne, N.Y.-N.J. 
(+87,400), Dallas-Plano-Irving, Texas (+45,300), and Chicago-Joliet-Naperville, Ill.

   | Effective with the release of 2011 annual average estimates on   |
   | February 29, labor force and unemployment data for all states,   |
   | the District of Columbia, and the seven modeled substate areas   |
   | presented in tables 1 and 2 of this news release were revised    |
   | from 2007 through 2011 to incorporate updated inputs, new        |
   | population controls, reestimation of models, and adjustment to   |
   | new division and national control totals. Historical revisions   |
   | for all model-based area estimates were loaded into the BLS      |
   | time series database at that time.                               |
   |                                                                  |
   | Labor force and unemployment data for the non-modeled            |
   | metropolitan areas and divisions presented in tables 1 and 2 of  |
   | this news release have been revised for 2011 to incorporate      |
   | updated inputs and adjustment to new state control totals.       |
   | However, historical estimates for these areas and divisions in   |
   | the BLS time series database have not been revised and do not    |
   | match the data for 2011 in this release. Revisions for all non-  |
   | modeled metropolitan area and division estimates from 2007       |

   | BLS’ Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW), as well    |
   | as updated seasonal adjustment factors. Not seasonally adjusted  |
   | data for states, areas, and divisions were revised back to April |
   | 2010, and seasonally adjusted data were subject to revision back |
   | to January 1990. For more information on benchmark procedures,   |

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 na-
tional 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 per-
cent 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" esti-
mates 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 in-
surance (UI) laws and entrants to the labor force data from the CPS.
The substate estimates of employment and unemployment, which geograph- 
ically 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 avail-
able 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 revi-
sions 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 2007 ver-
sion 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 sam-
ple of establishments reporting for both months.  The estimates of em-
ployment for the current month are obtained by multiplying the esti-
mates 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 un-
employment 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 employ-
ment, and the sample is used to measure the month-to-month changes in 
the level for the subsequent months.

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 particular 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 un-
rounded data and thus may differ slightly from rates computed using
the rounded data displayed in the tables.

   Labor force and unemployment estimates.  Model-based error measures
are available for states on the Internet at www.bls.gov/lau/lastderr.htm.
Measures of nonsampling error are not available, but additional infor-
mation 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 supersector level and for metropolitan area CES data at the 
total nonfarm level are available online at www.bls.gov/sae/790stderr.htm.
Information on recent benchmark revisions for states is available on the
BLS Web site at www.bls.gov/sae/.

Area definitions
   
   The substate area data published in this release reflect the stan-
dards 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 admini-
stration 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 Web site at www.bls.gov/sae/.

   1 Area boundaries do not reflect official OMB definitions.
   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 2011 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.

   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, 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 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 2011 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.

NOTE: Data are counts of jobs by place of work. Data have been revised to reflect 2011 benchmark levels. Estimates subsequent to the current benchmark are provisional 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.
