Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS)

Enter Title

The LAUS program produces monthly and annual employment, unemployment, and labor force data for census regions and divisions, states, counties, metropolitan areas, and many cities, by place of residence. The LAUS program provides labor force data (employment and unemployment rates) for each state and sub-state area (metropolitan areas, counties, and cities with populations larger than 25,000). LAUS data are used for planning and budgetary purposes , determining employment and training program needs, allocating federal funds under the workforce investment act (WIA) and the federal emergency management agency (FEMA), and identifying labor surplus areas, which receive preference in the awarding of federal procurement contracts.
