Labor Market Information - State of Connecticut vs. United States Unemployment Rate
  State of Connecticut vs. United States Unemployment Rate - State of Connecticut Last Updated: September 17, 2020
The August 2020 official unemployment rate for Connecticut was estimated by the BLS Local Area Unemployment Statistics program (LAUS) to be 8.1% (seasonally adjusted), down 2.1 percentage points from the revised July level of 10.2%. The US jobless rate in August 2020 was 8.4%, down 1.8 percentage points from July's rate of 10.2%.

The Connecticut unemployment rate continues to be underestimated due to challenges encountered in the collection of data for the August Current Population Survey (CPS) which is the foundation of the statistical model used to determine all states' unemployment rates. In addition to a poor response rate in an already small sample size in Connecticut, key questions continue to be misinterpreted and misclassified. Specifically, a significant number of respondents who should have been classified as temporarily out of work and therefore unemployed were instead classified as employed, but away from work (e.g. sick). To see the BLS explanation of this issue follow the following link to the August employment situation press release and see the Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact notes at the end of the release. https://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm

The Office of Research estimates the unemployment rate to be in the range of 14% - 15% for the Mid-August period (same time frame as the BLS estimate). This estimate was made using Connecticut residential unemployment insurance claims adding in a factor for the unemployed self-employed, and estimating the size of the labor force.
