Find the Ratios

Locate the sub-county data file for the county in which the sub-county area is located.  You may want to view the file to verify that the area you need is available.  The data in this file should look like this:
                         Labor  Employ-  Unemployment    Emp     Unemp
Area Name                Force     ment  Number  Rate   Ratio    Ratio
Column                    (1)      (2)    (3)    (4)    (5)       (6)

Amador County           18,900   17,400   1,500   7.7%  1.000000  1.000000

Amador City - city         200      200       0   4.2%  0.009184  0.004839
Ione - city              1,900    1,800     100   5.7%  0.100661  0.072581

Sutter Creek - city      1,500    1,400     100   9.3%  0.081337  0.100000
At this point, you may want to write down the employment and unemployment ratios in columns (5) and (6), or save the entire document for future reference.  These ratios will remain constant until the next decennial federal census.
