Why This Indicator Matters
Employment matters for individual well-being and economic security.1 Being unemployed can make it difficult for people to meet basic needs and can also lead to changes in physical and mental health, and in family dyanimcs.2
Definition and Source
The unemployment rate used here is not seasonally adjusted and is the annual average. Once each year, labor force estimates are revised to reflect updated input data and new Census Bureau population controls. Unemployment rates for previous years may be revised as necessary.
