Find the latest available data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on unemployment rates and employment by industry and occupation for states, metro areas, and counties. Search by area name, zip code, or use your GPS location, and drill down or up to get comparable data for different geographic levels.

Use this app as a starting point to understand employment and wage conditions in your local labor market. Compare your local labor market to other counties, metro areas, and states, and see how your state or county compares to national levels. Look at rates of change in employment or wages over the year. Compare local employment and wage levels for private businesses and government.

National unemployment rate from the Current Population Survey (CPS), plus state, metro area, and county unemployment rates from the Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program.

County employment and wages by industry from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program.
