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 definitions are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 18-03, dated April 10, 2018, and are available on the BLS website at https://www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm. Data have been revised back to January 2014 to incorporate updated population controls, reestimation of models, adjustment to new division and national control totals, and revised seasonal adjustment. Estimates for the latest month are subject to revision the following month.
