REGIONAL AND STATE EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT — MAY 2013
Regional and state unemployment rates were little changed in May. Twenty-five states had
unemployment rate decreases, 17 states had increases, and 8 states and the District of Columbia
had no change, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Forty-one states and the District
of Columbia had unemployment rate decreases from a year earlier, four states had increases, and five
states had no change. The national jobless rate was essentially unchanged from April at 7.6 percent
but was 0.6 percentage point lower than in May 2012.
In May 2013, nonfarm payroll employment increased in 33 states and the District of Columbia and
decreased in 17 states. The largest over-the-month increases in employment occurred in Ohio (+32,100),
Texas (+19,500), and Michigan (+18,100). The largest over-the-month decrease in employment
occurred in Pennsylvania (-9,200), followed by South Carolina (-7,700) and Florida (-6,200). Nebraska,
Ohio, and South Dakota had the largest over-the-month percentage increases in employment (+0.6
percent each). Alaska (-1.3 percent) and Vermont (-0.7 percent) had the largest over-the-month
percentage declines in employment. Over the year, nonfarm employment increased in 48 states and the
District of Columbia and decreased in 2 states. The largest over-the-year percentage increases occurred
in North Dakota (+3.2 percent) and Texas (+3.0 percent). The two over-the-year percentage decreases in
employment occurred in Alaska (-1.3 percent) and Wyoming (-0.6 percent).
Regional Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)
In May, the West continued to have the highest regional unemployment rate, 7.8 percent, while the
Midwest and South had the lowest rates, 7.2 percent each. Over the month, the West had the only
statistically significant unemployment rate change (-0.2 percentage point). Significant over-the-year
rate changes occurred in three regions: the West (-1.6 percentage points), Northeast (-0.7 point), and
South (-0.6 point). (See table 1.)
Among the nine geographic divisions, the Pacific continued to have the highest jobless rate, 8.2 percent
in May. The West North Central again had the lowest rate, 5.4 percent. The Pacific had the only
statistically significant over-the-month unemployment rate change (-0.3 percentage point). Four
divisions had significant rate changes from a year earlier: the Pacific (-1.8 percentage points), Mountain
(-1.0 point), South Atlantic (-0.9 point), and Middle Atlantic (-0.8 point).

State Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)
Nevada had the highest unemployment rate among the states in May, 9.5 percent. The next highest rates
were in Illinois and Mississippi, 9.1 percent each. North Dakota again had the lowest jobless rate, 3.2
percent. In total, 21 states had jobless rates significantly lower than the U.S. figure of 7.6 percent, 8
states and the District of Columbia had measurably higher rates, and 21 states had rates that were not
appreciably different from that of the nation. (See tables A and 3 and chart 1.)
Six states had statistically significant over-the-month unemployment rate changes in May, of which
four were declines and two were increases. The significant decreases occurred in California and West
Virginia (-0.4 percentage point each) and Hawaii and New York (-0.2 point each). The increases were in
Tennessee (+0.3 percentage point) and Kansas (+0.1 point). The remaining 44 states and the District of
Columbia had jobless rates that were not measurably different from those of a month earlier, though
some had changes that were at least as large numerically as the significant changes.
Fifteen states had statistically significant unemployment rate changes from May 2012, all of which were
declines. The largest of these occurred in California (-2.1 percentage points) and Nevada (-2.0 points).
(See table B.)
Nonfarm Payroll Employment (Seasonally Adjusted)
In May 2013, 11 states had statistically significant over-the-month changes in employment, 7 of which
were increases. The largest statistically significant job gains occurred in Ohio (+32,100), Michigan
(+18,100), and New Jersey (+14,300). The largest statistically significant job decreases occurred in
South Carolina (-7,700), Arkansas (-5,900), and Alaska (-4,200). (See table C.)
Over the year, 31 states had statistically significant changes in employment, all of which were positive.
The largest over-the-year job increase occurred in Texas (+324,700), followed by California (+252,100)
and Florida (+122,500). (See table D and chart 2.)

Technical Note
This release presents labor force and unemployment
data for census regions and divisions, states, and selected
substate areas from the Local Area Unemployment Statistics
(LAUS) program (tables 1 to 4). Also presented are nonfarm
payroll employment estimates by state and industry
supersector from the Current Employment Statistics (CES)
program (tables 5 and 6). The LAUS and CES programs are
both federal-state cooperative endeavors.

Labor force and unemployment—from the LAUS
program
Definitions. The labor force and unemployment data are
based on the same concepts and definitions as those used for
the official national estimates obtained from the Current
Population Survey (CPS), a sample survey of households that
is conducted for the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) by the
U.S. Census Bureau. The LAUS program measures employment and unemployment on a place-of-residence basis. The
universe for each is the civilian noninstitutional population 16
years of age and over. Employed persons are those who did
any work at all for pay or profit in the reference week (the
week including the 12th of the month) or worked 15 hours or
more without pay in a family business or farm, plus those not
working who had a job from which they were temporarily
absent, whether or not paid, for such reasons as bad weather,
labor-management dispute, illness, or vacation. Unemployed
persons are those who were not employed during the
reference week (based on the definition above), had actively
looked for a job sometime in the 4-week period ending with
the reference week, and were currently available for work;
persons on layoff expecting recall need not be looking for
work to be counted as unemployed. The labor force is the
sum of employed and unemployed persons. The unemployment rate is the number of unemployed as a percent of the
labor force.
Method of estimation. Estimates for 48 of the 50
states, the District of Columbia, the Los Angeles-Long
Beach-Glendale metropolitan division, New York City, and
the balances of California and New York State are produced
using estimating equations based on regression techniques.
This method, which underwent substantial enhancement at
the beginning of 2005, utilizes data from several sources,
including the CPS, the CES, and state unemployment
insurance (UI) programs. Estimates for the state of California
are derived by summing the estimates for the Los AngelesLong Beach-Glendale metropolitan division and the balance
of California. Similarly, estimates for New York State are
derived by summing the estimates for New York City and the
balance of New York State. Estimates for all nine census
divisions and the five additional substate areas contained in
this release (the Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor and DetroitWarren-Livonia metropolitan areas and the Chicago-JolietNaperville, Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, and SeattleBellevue-Everett metropolitan divisions) and their respective

balances of state are based on a similar regression approach
that does not incorporate CES or UI data. Estimates for
census regions are obtained by summing the model-based
estimates for the component divisions and then calculating
the unemployment rate. Each month, census division
estimates are controlled to national totals; state estimates are
then controlled to their respective division totals. Substate
and balance-of-state estimates for the five areas noted above
are controlled to their respective state totals. Estimates for
Puerto Rico are derived from a monthly household survey
similar to the CPS. A detailed description of the estimation
procedures is available from BLS upon request.
Annual revisions. Labor force and unemployment data
for prior years reflect adjustments made at the end of each
year. The adjusted estimates reflect updated population data
from the U.S. Census Bureau, any revisions in the other data
sources, and model reestimation. In most years, historical
data for the most recent five years (both seasonally adjusted
and not seasonally adjusted) are revised near the beginning of
each calendar year, prior to the release of January estimates.
Seasonal adjustment. The LAUS program introduced
smoothed seasonally adjusted (SSA) estimates in January
2010. These are seasonally adjusted data that have
incorporated a long-run trend smoothing procedure, resulting
in estimates that are less volatile than those previously
produced. The estimates are smoothed using a Henderson
Trend Filter (H13). The H13 uses a filtering procedure, based
on moving averages, to remove the irregular fluctuations
from the seasonally adjusted series, leaving the trend. The
same process is used on both historical and current year
estimates. For more information about the smoothing
technique,
see
the
BLS
website
at
www.bls.gov/lau/lassaqa.htm.
Area definitions. The substate area data published in
this release reflect the standards and definitions established
by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget on December
1, 2009. A detailed list of the geographic definitions is available
online at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm.

Employment—from the CES program
Definitions. Employment data refer to persons on
establishment payrolls who receive pay for any part of the
pay period that includes the 12th of the month. Persons are
counted at their place of work rather than at their place of
residence; those appearing on more than one payroll are
counted on each payroll. Industries are classified on the basis
of their principal activity in accordance with the 2012 version
of the North American Industry Classification System.
Method of estimation. CES State and Area
employment data are produced using several estimation
procedures. Where possible these data are produced using a

"weighted link relative" estimation technique in which a ratio
of current-month weighted employment to that of the
previous-month weighted employment is computed from a
sample of establishments reporting for both months. The
estimates of employment for the current month are then
obtained by multiplying these ratios by the previous month’s
employment estimates. The weighted link relative technique
is utilized for data series where the sample size meets certain
statistical criteria.
For some employment series, relatively small sample
sizes limit the reliability of the weighted link-relative
estimates. In these cases, BLS uses the CES small domain
model (SDM) to generate employment estimates. The SDM
combines the direct sample estimates (described above) and
forecasts of historical (benchmarked) data to decrease the
volatility of the estimates. With the January 2013 estimates
published on March 18, 2013, BLS will refine the SDM
methodology to incorporate more real-time information in the
model.
For more detailed information about the CES small
domain model, refer to the BLS Handbook of Methods.
Annual revisions. Employment estimates are adjusted
annually to a complete count of jobs, called benchmarks,
derived principally from tax reports that are submitted by
employers who are covered under state unemployment
insurance (UI) laws. The benchmark information is used to
adjust the monthly estimates between the new benchmark and
the preceding one and also to establish the level of
employment for the new benchmark month. Thus, the
benchmarking process establishes the level of employment,
and the sample is used to measure the month-to-month
changes in the level for the subsequent months.
Seasonal adjustment. Payroll employment data are
seasonally adjusted at the statewide supersector level. In
some states, the seasonally adjusted payroll employment total
is computed by aggregating the independently adjusted supersector series. In other states, the seasonally adjusted payroll
employment total is independently adjusted. Revisions of
historical data for the most recent 5 years are made once a
year, coincident with annual benchmark adjustments.
Caution on aggregating state data. State estimation
procedures are designed to produce accurate data for each
individual state. BLS independently develops a national
employment series; state estimates are not forced to sum to
national totals. Because each state series is subject to larger
sampling and nonsampling errors than the national series,
summing them cumulates individual state level errors and can
cause significant distortions at an aggregate level. Due to
these statistical limitations, BLS does not compile a "sum-ofstates" employment series, and cautions users that such a
series is subject to a relatively large and volatile error
structure.

Reliability of the estimates

The estimates presented in this release are based on
sample surveys, administrative data, and modeling and, thus,
are subject to sampling and other types of errors. Sampling
error is a measure of sampling variability—that is, variation
that occurs by chance because a sample rather than the entire
population is surveyed. Survey data also are subject to
nonsampling errors, such as those which can be introduced
into the data collection and processing operations. Estimates
not directly derived from sample surveys are subject to
additional errors resulting from the specific estimation
processes used. The sums of individual items may not always
equal the totals shown in the same tables because of
rounding. Unemployment rates are computed from unrounded data and thus may differ slightly from rates
computed using the rounded data displayed in the tables.
Use of error measures. In 2005, the LAUS program
introduced several improvements to its methodology. Among
these were the development of model-based error measures
for the monthly estimates and the estimates of over-themonth changes. The introductory section of this release
preserves the long-time practice of highlighting the direction
of the movements in regional and state unemployment rates
and state nonfarm payroll employment regardless of their
statistical significance. The remainder of the analysis in the
release takes statistical significance into consideration.
Labor force and unemployment estimates. Modelbased error measures for seasonally adjusted and not
seasonally adjusted data and for over-the-month and overthe-year
changes
are
available
online
at
www.bls.gov/lau/lastderr.htm. BLS uses a 90-percent
confidence level in determining whether changes in LAUS
unemployment rates are statistically significant. The average
magnitude of the current year over-the-month change in a
state unemployment rate that is required for statistical
significance at the 90-percent confidence level is just over 0.2
percentage point; the average amount of the current over-theyear change in a state rate for significance is about 0.9 point.
More details can be found on the website. Measures of
nonsampling error are not available.
Employment estimates. Measures of sampling error for
state CES data at the total nonfarm and supersector levels are
available online at www.bls.gov/sae/790stderr.htm. BLS uses
a 90-percent confidence level in determining whether
changes in CES employment levels are statistically
significant. Information on recent benchmark revisions for
states is available online at www.bls.gov/sae/.

Additional information

LAUS program, as well as nonfarm employment from the
CES program, for 380 metropolitan areas and metropolitan
