    Small-area employment inputs for five areas in Maryland were corrected for January and February 2022. Due to additivity to the state level, these corrections resulted in minor changes to employment and labor force series for all areas in Maryland, as well as shared interstate areas with Delaware, the District of Columbia, and Pennsylvania. Unemployment rates were affected in a small number of areas, and no area had an unemployment rate change larger than 0.3 percentage point. These estimates were corrected in the LABSTAT database on June 29, 2022.

    In the spring of 2020, BLS modified its imputation process for the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) to be more responsive to current economic conditions. While continuing work to improve this process, BLS made an unintended data-processing error. This error affected data for the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2020. BLS has analyzed this issue and has determined that the impact on QCEW employment was negligible at the statewide level. In smaller areas and industries, revisions may be larger than usual. Wage data were not affected. Following the usual QCEW practice, these data will be revised and corrected with the full data update on September 1, 2021.
