Note on corrections to labor force estimates for New England States

Labor force data for the State of Connecticut (including the unemployment rate) reflect a minor input error found late in production of the July estimates. The estimates for the five other New England States also are affected due to additivity in the estimating process. A version of this news release containing corrected estimates will be issued as soon as possible. The corrections will be minimal. Data shown for the Northeast and for New England are correct as published. Payroll employment data shown for Connecticut and all other States are not affected by the error. For further assistance, please contact the BLS Local Area Unemployment Statistics Division.
