       REGIONAL AND STATE EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT -- OCTOBER 2011


Regional and state unemployment rates were generally little changed or slightly 
lower in October. Thirty-six states and the District of Columbia recorded 
unemployment rate decreases, five states posted rate increases, and nine states had 
no rate change, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Forty states 
registered unemployment rate decreases from a year earlier, eight states and the 
District of Columbia had increases, and two states experienced no change. The 
national jobless rate was little changed at 9.0 percent, but was 0.7 percentage 
point lower than a year earlier.

In October, nonfarm payroll employment increased in 39 states and the District of 
Columbia, and decreased in 11 states. The largest over-the-month increases in 
employment occurred in Illinois (+30,000) and California (+25,700). The largest 
over-the-month decrease in employment occurred in Wisconsin (-9,700), followed by 
New York (-8,300) and Minnesota (-6,100). Delaware experienced the largest 
over-the-month percentage increase in employment (+1.0 percent), followed by North 
Dakota (+0.7 percent) and Oklahoma (+0.6 percent). Wisconsin experienced the largest
over-the-month percentage decline in employment (-0.4 percent), followed by Maine, 
Rhode Island, and Wyoming (-0.3 percent each). Over the year, nonfarm employment 
increased in 45 states and the District of Columbia, and decreased in 5 states. The 
largest over-the-year percentage increase occurred in North Dakota (+4.9 percent), 
followed by Oklahoma (+3.1 percent) and Utah (+2.6 percent). The largest 
over-the-year percentage decreases in employment occurred in Georgia (-0.9 percent) 
and Indiana (-0.4 percent).

Regional Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)

The West continued to record the highest regional unemployment rate in October, 10.3 
percent, while the Northeast again reported the lowest rate, 8.1 percent. Over the 
month, the South and West registered statistically significant jobless rate changes 
(-0.1 percentage point each). Two regions had significant rate changes from a year 
earlier, both decreases: the West (-0.7 percentage point) and Midwest (-0.5 point). 
(See table 1.)

Among the nine geographic divisions, the Pacific continued to report the highest 
jobless rate, 10.9 percent in October. The West North Central again registered the 
lowest rate, 6.6 percent. Three divisions experienced statistically significant 
unemployment rate changes over the month: the Pacific, South Atlantic, and West 
North Central (-0.2 percentage point each). Over the year, five divisions recorded
significant rate decreases, the largest of which was in the Mountain 
(-0.9 percentage point). No division had a statistically significant unemployment 
rate increase from October 2010.

State Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)

Nevada continued to record the highest unemployment rate among the states, 13.4 
percent in October. California posted the next highest rate, 11.7 percent. North 
Dakota registered the lowest jobless rate, 3.5 percent, followed by Nebraska, 4.2 
percent. In total, 26 states reported jobless rates significantly lower than the 
U.S. figure of 9.0 percent, 10 states and the District of Columbia had measurably 
higher rates, and 14 states had rates that were not appreciably different from that 
of the nation. (See tables A and 3.)

Twelve states experienced statistically significant over-the-month unemployment rate 
declines in October. The largest of these were in Alabama, Michigan, and Minnesota 
(-0.5 percentage point each), followed by South Carolina and Utah (-0.4 point each). 
Thirty-eight 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.)

New Mexico registered the largest jobless rate decrease from October 2010 
(-2.0 percentage points). Four additional states reported smaller but also 
statistically significant decreases over the year: Florida (-1.5 percentage points), 
Oregon (-1.1 points), Massachusetts (-1.0 point), and California (-0.8 point). The 
District of Columbia posted the only significant rate increase from a year earlier 
(+1.3 percentage points). Forty-five states recorded unemployment rates that were 
not appreciably different from those of a year earlier.

Nonfarm Payroll Employment (Seasonally Adjusted)

In October, 14 states recorded statistically significant changes in employment, 13 
of which were increases. The largest over-the-month statistically significant job 
gains occurred in Illinois (+30,000), California (+25,700), Virginia (+14,000), and 
Pennsylvania (+13,800). The only state with an over-the-month statistically 
significant decline in employment was Wisconsin (-9,700). (See tables C and 5.)

Over the year, 23 states experienced statistically significant changes in 
employment, 22 of which were increases. The largest increase occurred in California 
(+239,100), followed by Texas (+231,600) and Florida (+93,900). The only state with 
an over-the-year statistically significant decrease in employment was Georgia 
(-33,300). (See table D.)

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 Statis-
tics (BLS) by the U.S. Census Bureau. The LAUS program measures employ-
ment 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 dis-
pute, 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 unem-
ployed. 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-Glen-
dale metropolitan division and the balance of California. Similarly, esti-
mates 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 divi-
sions 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 season-
ally 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 ad-
justed (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 esti-
mates 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 resi-
dence; 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 rela-
tive" 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-do-
main 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 em-
ployment 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 em-
ployment total is computed by aggregating the independently adjusted supersector
series. In other states, the seasonally adjusted payroll employment total is in-
dependently 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 vola-
tile error structure.

Reliability of the estimates

   The estimates presented in this release are based on sample surveys, adminis-
trative 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 sur-
veyed. 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 re-
sulting 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. Un-
employment 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 improve-
ments 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 signi-
ficance. The remainder of the analysis in the release takes statistical signifi-
cance 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 level and for metropolitan area CES data at the
total nonfarm level are available online at www.bls.gov/sae/790stderr.htm. BLS
uses a 90-percent confidence level in determining whether changes in CES employ-
ment levels are statistically significant. Information on recent benchmark revi-
sions for states is available on the Internet at www.bls.gov/sae/.

estimates and additional data appear in Employment and Earnings Online.

   Estimates of labor force and unemployment from the LAUS program, as well as
nonfarm employment from the CES program, for 380 metropolitan areas and
