State LMI offices commonly get questions about characteristics of workers and non-workers. While regular monthly data sources don’t have much detail in that area, there are a few options (with limited geographic extent or infrequent publication).
|BLS Geographic Profiles||States and Census Regions||This is an annual calculation from the CPS with a historical series going back to 1997. The release of the annual tables lags the end of the year by six months to a year.|
|ACS||All Census geographies||ACS has the most geographic detail, but is available annually or for a 5-year survey period.|
|WID Version?||County and State||ACS 2017 5-year data has been structured for use with the WID. This is still non-standard content but is available for download.|
This is non-standard content but has been structured to work seamlessly with the WID.
This is a new data source at the national level. If there’s interest, it will continue to be produced in future years, with updates occurring in January.
