        METROPOLITAN AREA EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT -- JANUARY 2015


Unemployment rates were lower in January than a year earlier in 339 of the 387 
metropolitan areas, higher in 38 areas, and unchanged in 10 areas, the U.S. 
Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Three areas had jobless rates of 
less than 3.0 percent and 17 areas had rates of at least 10.0 percent. Nonfarm 
payroll employment increased over the year in 357 metropolitan areas, decreased 
in 25 areas, and was unchanged in 5 areas. The national unemployment rate in January 
was 6.1 percent, not seasonally adjusted, down from 7.0 percent a year earlier.

Metropolitan Area Unemployment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Midland, Texas, had the lowest unemployment rate in January, 2.6 percent, followed 
by Lincoln, Neb., 2.8 percent, and Ames, Iowa, 2.9 percent. El Centro, Calif., and 
Yuma, Ariz., had the highest unemployment rates, 21.3 percent and 19.8 percent, 
respectively. A total of 198 areas had January unemployment rates below the U.S. 
figure of 6.1 percent, 177 areas had rates above it, and 12 areas had rates equal 
to that of the nation. (See table 1.)

Decatur, Ill., had the largest over-the-year unemployment rate decrease in January 
(-3.4 percentage points). Nineteen other areas had rate decreases of at least 2.0 
percentage points. Alexandria, La., had the largest over-the-year jobless rate 
increase (+1.4 percentage points).

|            Changes to Local Area Unemployment Statistics Data			     |
|										     |
|   Effective with the issuance of Regional and State Unemployment 2014 Annual	     |
|   Averages on March 4, 2015, the civilian labor force and unemployment data	     |
|   for census regions and divisions and all states, the District of Columbia,	     |
|   and the seven modeled substate areas presented in tables 1 and 2 of this	     |
|   news release were replaced with data produced using a new generation of	     |
|   time-series models. Revised estimates were loaded into the BLS time-series	     |
|   database back to the series beginnings in 1976, 1990, or 1994 at that time.	     |
|   Both seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted data were affected.	     |
|   The revisions to model-based data at the state level and below for 2013	     |
|   and 2014 also incorporate updated estimation inputs, while the revisions 	     |
|   for all model-based data from April 2010 forward reflect new population	     |
|   controls from the U.S. Census Bureau.					     |
|										     |
|   Civilian labor force and unemployment data for the non-modeled metropolitan	     |
|   areas and metropolitan divisions presented in tables 1 and 2 of this news	     |
|   release have been revised for 2014 to incorporate methodological enhancements,   |
|   updated estimation 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 2014 in this news   |
|   release. Revisions for all non-modeled substate areas from 2010 through 2014     |
|   will be loaded into the database on April 21, 2015. For more information,	     |

|        										 |
|   Effective with this release, nonfarm payroll estimates for states and metropolitan   |
|   areas (tables 3 and 4) have been revised as a result of annual benchmark processing  |
|   to reflect 2014 employment counts primarily from the BLS Quarterly Census of 	 |
|   Employment and Wages. Not seasonally adjusted data beginning with April 2013 were 	 |
|   revised. For more information on annual processing, 				 |

|       Changes to Metropolitan Area and Metropolitan Division Delineations		 |
|  											 |
|   In addition to the changes described above, both the civilian labor force data 	 |
|   presented in tables 1 and 2 and the nonfarm payroll employment data presented 	 |
|   in tables 3 and 4 of this news release reflect implementation of revised 		 |
|   metropolitan area and metropolitan division delineations. The revised 		 |
|   delineations were issued by the Office of Management and Budget for solely 		 |
|   statistical purposes through Bulletin No. 13-01 on February 28, 2013, based 	 |
|   on the application of updated statistical standards to U.S. Census Bureau 		 |
|   population and journey-to-work data. The Metropolitan New England City and Town 	 |
|   Areas (NECTAs) and NECTA Divisions again are used for the six New England states, 	 |
|   rather than the county-based delineations, for purposes of this news release. 	 |
|   Compared with the Census 2000-based delineations, the number of metropolitan areas 	 |
|   in the U.S. and Puerto Rico increased from 380 to 394, while the number of 		 |
|   metropolitan divisions increased from 34 to 38. The analyses of both unemployment 	 |
|   rates and nonfarm payroll employment changes for large metropolitan areas focus 	 |
|   on the 51 areas with 2010 Census populations of 1 million or more.			 |
|                                                                                        |
|   Within the BLS time-series database, both civilian labor force and nonfarm 		 |
|   payroll employment series reconstructed back to January 1990 to reflect the 	 |
|   revised metropolitan area and metropolitan division delineations were loaded on 	 |
|   March 17, 2015. More information about the statistical area changes is available 	 |

Technical Note
 
 
   This release presents labor force and unemployment data from the Local
Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program (tables 1 and 2) for 387
metropolitan statistical areas and metropolitan New England City and
Town Areas (NECTAs), plus 7 areas in Puerto Rico. Estimates for 38
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
older. 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 estimates are also produced
for the following areas and their respective balances: the Chicago-Naperville-
Arlington Heights, IL Metropolitan Division; Cleveland-Elyria, OH Metropolitan
Statistical Area; Detroit-Warren-Dearborn, MI Metropolitan Statistical Area;
Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, FL Metropolitan Division; and Seattle-Bellevue-Everett,
WA Metropolitan Division. 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 beginning of each year, usually
implemented with the issuance of January estimates. The adjusted model-based
estimates typically reflect updated population data from the U.S. Census Bureau,
any revisions in other input data sources, and model re-estimation. All substate
estimates then are re-estimated using updated inputs and adjusted to add to the
revised model-based totals. In early 2015, a new generation of time-series
models was implemented, resulting in the replacement of data back to the series 
beginnings. At the same time, enhancements were made to the substate estimation
methodology, and more timely inputs from the American Community Survey were incorporated.

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, the sample of establishments is very small or highly
variable. In these cases, a model-based approach is used in estimation. These models
use the direct sample estimates (described above), combined with forecasts of historical
(benchmarked) data to decrease volatility in estimation. Two different models (Fay-Herriot
Model and Small Domain Model) are used depending on the industry level being estimated.
For more detailed information about each 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. 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
delineations issued by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget on
February 28, 2013. 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 online at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm.

Additional information
  
   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, 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/.

   1 For operational reasons, these interstate areas are listed under the state that accounts for the larger share of the
population, which is different from the state that contains the first principal city.
   2 The area boundary does not reflect the Office of Management and Budget delineation. 
   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 delineations are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 13-01, dated
February 28, 2013, and are available on the BLS website 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 containing the first principal city, unless otherwise
footnoted. Data for 2014 incorporate updated inputs, methodological enhancements, 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 delineations are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No.
13-01, dated February 28, 2013, and are available on the BLS website 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 containing the first principal city. 
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. For Washington-Arlington-
Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va., the metropolitan area and division titles are identical. Data for 2014 incorporate updated
inputs, methodological enhancements, 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 2014 benchmark levels. Estimates subsequent to the current benchmark are preliminary and will be revised when new information becomes available. Area delineations are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 13-01, dated February 28, 2013, and are available on the BLS website 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 containing the first principal city, unless otherwise footnoted. Estimates for the latest month are subject to revision the following month.
