Most states and metropolitan areas gained jobs in May, June, and July after large losses in March and April

State and metropolitan area diffusion indexes are a new set of measures on employment changes. The new measure summarizes how widespread employment increases or decreases are across all states or metropolitan areas.

To create diffusion index for all states and the District of Columbia, we start by assigning the states and DC a value of 0, 50, or 100 depending on whether employment decreased, stayed the same, or increased during the period we are looking at. Next, we average the 51 values. That average is the state diffusion index. Similarly the metropolitan area diffusion index is the average value for 388 metropolitan areas.

An index greater than 50 means more states or metropolitan areas had increasing employment over the period. An index below 50 means more states or metropolitan areas had decreasing employment. At the extremes, an index of 0 means employment fell in all states or metropolitan areas; an index of 100 means employment rose in all of them.

The 1-month diffusion index in July 2020 was 94.1 for all states and 82.5 for all metropolitan areas. These are similar to the indexes for May and June, but sharply different from the March and April indexes, which were at or near zero.

These data are from the Current Employment Statistics (State and Metro Area) program and are seasonally adjusted. Data for the most recent month are preliminary and subject to revision. To learn more about state and metro area employment diffusion indexes, see the Commissioner's Corner blog.
