ENDNOTES—GENERAL ECONOMIC INFORMATION
1
The1990 and 2000 population figures are from the decennial censuses (April 1). All other population data are estimates dated July 1
of that year.
2
Estimates of New Jersey’s real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) (chained dollars) are derived by applying national chain-type implicit
price deflators to the current-dollar GDP estimates and are produced by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis. The use of chain
weighting allows for changing relative prices and production patterns, thus eliminating a major source of bias associated with fixed
weight measures. Current estimates of real GDP use 2000 as the base year.
3
Annual average estimates are compiled based on place of residence.
4
Unemployed individuals covered by the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Program. The “number” column refers to the weekly average
of weeks claimed for UI benefits.

ENDNOTES—UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (continued)
22
Disbursements for the State-funded Emergency Unemployment Benefits (EUB) Program commenced on August 19, 1991 and ended
November 16, 1991 providing up to six and one-half weeks of benefits to eligible individuals. The New Jersey Extended Benefits
Program (NJEB) provided up to 13 weeks of additional unemployment benefits to claimants who exhausted regular benefits from
June 1996 through November 1996, with benefits ending March 1, 1997. In April 2002, an EUB program was implemented which
provided up to 10 weeks of retroactive benefits to eligible claimants.
23
Beginning in 1992, one component of the Workforce Development Partnership (WDP) Program provides for payment of Additional
Benefits During Training (ABT) to qualified individuals at the regular weekly benefit rate for up to 26 weeks while enrolled in
approved training.
24
New claims are first requests to determine whether an individual is eligible to receive unemployment benefits; includes intrastate

31
Effective for weeks of unemployment after November 15, 1991, the maximum entitlement under the UCX Program was increased to
26 weeks from 13 weeks.
32
Increase due to federal government shutdowns resulting from delays in passing the federal budget. Because the federal employees
returned to work with back pay, no increase in UCFE weeks claimed or weeks compensated occurred.

ENDNOTES—EMPLOYER ACCOUNTS

1
Status determinations represent recorded administrative decisions that an employing unit is subject to or is no longer subject to
the coverage provisions of the New Jersey Unemployment Compensation Law.
2
Beginning in 1998, as a result of a redesigned tax system, a reorganization of functions and changes in the processing of
accounts, data are not comparable with prior published information.
3
In addition to new workflow procedures, decreases in 2002 and 2003 were due, in part, to reduced staffing. Because of this,
many companies later found to be successors remain in the “new employer” counts.
4
Beginning in 1993, Workforce Development Partnership and health care taxes are included.
5
Investigations triggered by the filing of an Unemployment Insurance (UI) or Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) claim to
determine whether an employer or employee is covered by unemployment or temporary disability insurance.
6
Total number of audits plus investigations carried out by investigators and auditors.
7
Decreases are the result of policy changes and improved workflow.
8
Increase is the result of focusing more resources on collection efforts. This included a heavy mail campaign beginning in March
2005.
9
Hearings pertaining to unemployment insurance and disability insurance appeals filed by employers disputing administrative
rulings relative to status, liability for contributions, penalties and interest, refunds and contribution rates.
10
Under administrative law, once a request for a hearing is received by a Department, it is considered “a contested case”.
Contested cases are referred to redetermination auditors for the purpose of conducting informal hearings to attempt informal
resolution of these cases. This number represents the number of open cases in the possession of redetermination auditors at the
end of the year.
11
Those contested cases not resolved by redetermination auditors are transmitted to the Office of Administrative Law for the
scheduling of a formal hearing before an administrative law judge.

ENDNOTES—WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

1Number of individuals that secured employment within 180 days of receiving a significant labor exchange service.
2Work Opportunities Tax Credit (WOTC). Year-to-year fluctuations reflect periods with or without funding.
3From November 1991 to April 1994, UI claimants applying for or receiving Federal Supplemental Compensation (FSC) benefits

were required to register or renew their registrations with the Employment Service.
4Beginning April 1992, mandatory registration was waived for Regular UI claimants.
5The decline in referral’s largely due to a shift from one-on-one assistance to self-service and group services.
6Effective July 1, 2002, the count of labor exchange registrations changed from “receipt of application” to “receipt of application and

provision of first federally reportable service.” The registration figure decline is largely attributed to the fact many customers only
need/use federally unreported self-service resources.
7Number of individuals that were employed in the first quarter after exiting the labor exchange program.
8Includes carryover and deobligated funds.
9Includes health and safety training as an adjunct to occupational training.
10Decrease due to suspended grant activity during a portion of FY 2002. Legislation restoring funding was passed in 2003.
11The number of companies served is larger than usual due, in part, to a grant to assist about 2,500 small repair shops/garages in

training technicians after new emissions regulations were instituted by the State.
12Contracted amounts (grant funds awarded). Excludes deobligations during the year.
13Through PY 2004, participant counts were based solely on the number of individuals who received Work First New Jersey (WFNJ)

funded services. Changes to the counts were instituted in PY 2005 to also include WFNJ-eligible individuals who received self-
services, facilitated self-services and staff assisted services provided through One-Stop Career Centers.
14Program years commence on July 1 and end on June 30.
15Includes both older and younger youth.

ENDNOTES–––LABOR STANDARDS AND SAFETY ENFORCEMENT

1 During 1987, data include additional fees collected for wage collection hearings. Beginning in 1988, additional fees collected
include registration fees for apparel firms. As of July 1991, additional fees collected include administrative fees from
amendments to N.J.S.A. Title 34. As of April 2000, additional fees collected include registration fees resulting from the Public
Works Contractor Registration Act.
2 Data for 1988 to 1990 represent penalties collected under the Crew Leader Registration Act and the Apparel Registration Act. As

of July 1991, data include additional penalties collected from amendments to N.J.S.A. Title 34.
3 Calendar year 2001 and 2002 increases due to additional inspections resulting from the Public Works Contractor Registration Act.
4 Counts for calendar year 2001 and 2002 include multiple payments to individuals receiving back wages. In all prior and

subsequent years, individuals are counted only once for each claim.
5 Employment certificates are required of all persons between the ages of 14 and 18 years who obtain employment; in agriculture,

individuals between the ages of 12 and 16 years must obtain a work permit.
6 Determinations establish prevailing wage rates for construction jobs financed with public funds.
7 Effective April 2000, contractors bidding on/performing Public Works are required to register under the Public Works Contractor

Registration Act.
8 Data through May 1998 include carnival amusement rides and ski lifts. Responsibility in these areas was transferred to the

Department of Community Affairs in June 1998.
9 Includes explosives and model rocket permits.
10Model rocket permits were no longer issued as of January 1, 1993, resulting in a decrease in total permits issued and in

inspections.
11 Revision of regulations on explosives on March 2, 1998 resulted in decreases in the number of permits issued.
12 Visits to monitor and assist employers in correcting hazards; to provide safety and health training; and to assist in developing the

worksite safety program.
13 Visits to confirm hazard abatement.
14 Decrease in number due to national emphasis on accepting employer letters of abatement assurance rather than conducting on-site

follow-up visits.
15 Increase due to emphasis being placed on follow-up activity to meet federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)

Consultation Activity Measures (CAMs), with a goal of a 5 – 15% follow-up rate on initial visits.
16 The decrease in inspections for the 1996 to 2000 period was due to large staff reductions.
17On January 11, 2001, New Jersey was officially designated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as a

state plan state for public employees. This designation provided funds which made it possible to hire more field staff, thereby
increasing the level of inspection activity.
18Decrease is a result of less emphasis on providing education programs.

ENDNOTES—WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

1
Does not include medical treatment costs.
2
Cases which have been adjudicated by workers’ compensation courts; includes orders approving settlement.
3
Cases settled by referee at informal hearings; decision not binding.
4
Prior to 1989, fund revenues were reduced by refunds to insurance carriers and self-insured employers for payments of supplemental
benefits. Beginning in 1990, fund revenues were reduced by receipts appropriated and applied to workers’ compensation
administrative costs.
5
Beginning in 1988, legislation that required the payment of supplemental benefits directly from the fund caused an increase in
benefits paid.
6
Beginning in 1989, the method of funding was changed from an annual assessment collected in four calendar quarters to a surcharge
on “earned” workers’ compensation insurance premiums collected over seven calendar quarters, which contributed to a significant
reduction in cash flow. The surcharge on the insurance premiums represents approximately 98%(r) of the Fund’s annual receipts.
7
Amounts disbursed include Residual Equity Transfers to the General Fund of $30 million in calendar year 2000, $20 million in 2002,
$20 million in 2003 and $5 million in 2006.
8
Beginning with calendar year 1989, funding is provided by surcharges levied against “earned” premiums for workers’ compensation
coverage and against workers’ compensation benefits paid by self-insured employers. In addition, funding is provided by various
assessments and penalties levied pursuant to the statute.
9
Benefits paid are net of reimbursements collected.
10
Estimated benefits to be paid in calendar year 2007 are $160 million.
11
Total expenses (administrative costs and benefits) divided by unemployment insurance covered employment.
12
Disbursements commenced in 1990.
13
The increase in the calendar year 1992 collections resulted from deferred collections from prior periods.
14
No assessments were made in 1992, 1993, 1994, 1998 - 2002 and 2004 since the fund balance on December 31st was projected to
exceed $500,000 (R.S.34:15-120.1). Revenue collected these years resulted from prior year assessments.
15
Administrative costs were paid from the Uninsured Employers’ Fund starting calendar year 1992.
16
In 1994, $1 million was advanced from the Second Injury Fund pursuant to the FY 1995 Appropriations Act. This amount is
recorded as revenue in 1994. In 1997, the $1 million was repaid and is recorded as a refund of revenue. An additional $500,000 in
2004 and $300,000 in 2005 was advanced from the Second Injury Fund and was repaid in 2006.
