State of Connecticut - Connecticut Labor Force / Residents Employed / Residents Unemployed
  Labor Force / Residents Employed / Residents Unemployed - State of Connecticut Last Updated: December 18, 2014

Based on the household survey, the number of unemployed, seasonally adjusted, posted an increase of 1,106 (0.9%) over the month to 122,637 in November 2014.  On the other hand, the number of unemployed residents has decreased by 16,034 (-11.6%) since November 2013.  Connecticut’s slight uptick in the unemployment rate last month came about with a very large labor force increase (12,501, +0.7%) which is a tangible indication more residents are out looking for work.  Year-to-year labor force growth now measures 50,893 (2.8%).  Connecticut’s civilian labor force has increased 9 of 11 months in 2014 after bottoming out in this recovery in December 2013 at 1,845,784.  The United States unemployment rate was 5.8% in November, unchanged from the October 2014 rate of 5.8%, but lower by one and one-two tenths of a percentage point from the November 2013 rate of 7.0%.

Labor force data, reflecting persons employed by place of residence, are not directly comparable to the place-of-work industry employment series. In the labor force estimates, workers involved in labor disputes are counted as employed. The labor force data lso includes agricultural workers, unpaid family workers, domestics and the self-employed. Because of these conceptual differences, total labor force employment is almost always different from nonfarm wage and salary employment.

NOTE:  The preliminary estimates of nonfarm employment for December, and the revisions to the estimates for November, reflect changes made in estimation procedures. The changes include the introduction of new top-level sample-based figures into the development of the estimates. In addition, new procedures have been implemented that discount historical month-to-month employment movements and reduce the number of sample responses treated as non-representative. These new procedures are designed to bring the aggregate employment change for all states into closer alignment with the change in national employment reflected in the estimates produced and published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As a result of the changes made, at this point in time the November and December 2008 estimates are not totally comparable to previous months' data. This will be resolved with the release of revised (benchmarked) numbers for 2007 and 2008 that will be published in March.
NOTE:  Labor force estimates are a measure of the work status of people who live in Connecticut. Prepared under the direction of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the statewide estimates are the product of a signal-plus noise model, which uses results from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a monthly survey of Connecticut households, counts of claimants for unemployment benefits, and establishment employment estimates. Beginning with the publication of January 2005 data, an improved methodology is being used to develop labor force estimates, by which monthly state model-based employment and unemployment estimates are controlled to add to the national CPS levels. This will ensure that national economic events are reflected in the state estimates, and it will significantly reduce end-of-year revisions. (For more information, please see the Connecticut Economic Digest, December 2004 issue.) Labor force data, reflecting persons employed by place of residence, are not directly comparable to the place-of-work industry employment series. In the labor force estimates, workers involved in labor disputes are counted as employed. The labor force data also includes agricultural workers, unpaid family workers, domestics and the self-employed. Because of these conceptual differences, total labor force employment is almost always different from nonfarm wage and salary employment.

Based on the household survey, the number of unemployed, seasonally adjusted, posted an increase of 1,771 (1.5%) over the month to 121,575 in October 2014. The number of unemployed residents has decreased by 19,534 (-13.8%, considered statistically significant) since October 2013. Connecticut’s unchanged unemployment rate last month came about with the largest labor force increase this year (+10,675, +0.6%, considered statistically significant) - reflecting more residents drawn to the labor market looking for work. Year-to-year labor force growth now measures +35,651 (+1.9%). Connecticut’s civilian labor force has increased 8 of 10 months in 2014 after bottoming in this recovery in December 2013 at 1,845,784. The United States unemployment rate was 5.8% in October, down one-tenth of a percentage point from the September 2014 rate (5.9%), and lower by one and one-four tenths of a percentage point from the October 2013 rate when it was estimated at 7.2%.
