State of Connecticut - Connecticut Labor Force / Residents Employed / Residents Unemployed
  Labor Force / Residents Employed / Residents Unemployed - State of Connecticut Last Updated: April 20, 2015
Based on the Local Area Unemployment Statistics model (a complex statistical model using residential survey data), the number of unemployed, seasonally adjusted, experienced a negligible increase of 44 (less than 0.05%) over the month to 121,896 in March 2015.  Nevertheless, the number of unemployed residents has declined by 7,599 (-5.9%) since March 2014.  Connecticut continued to see civilian labor force growth (6,129, 0.3%) in March, for the eighteenth straight month since September 2013, and the best month so far in 2015.  Over the year, labor force growth now measures 36,305 (1.9%, considered statistically significant).  Our labor force now totals 1,916,002, and is at its’ best annualized growth pace since the recovery began in February 2010. 

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 500 (0.4%) over the month to 120,361 in January 2015. The number of unemployed residents has decreased by 12,906 (-9.7%) since January 2014. Over the year, labor force growth now measures 29,484 (1.6%, considered statistically significant). January 2015 saw Connecticut’s civilian labor force estimate grow (5,133, 0.3%) for the 16th straight month since October 2013 and is back over 1.9 million (1,904,496). The United States unemployment rate was 5.7% in January (preliminary to compare to ours), up one-tenth of a percentage point from the December 2014 rate of 5.6%, but lower by nine-tenths of a percentage point from the January 2014 rate of 6.6%.
