Substate Labor Force Data - LAUS Method

The time-series models, discussed earlier, produce state-level data as well as data for the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale MD.  Estimates for substate areas, except Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale MD, are produced using indirect estimation techniques described below.

In the Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program, the LAUS Handbook Employment and Unemployment method is used for producing sub-state employment and unemployment estimates.
Employment =    Total Nonagricultural wage and salary employment from
                                      the CES (adjusted for residency using the 2000 
              +    Labor disputants  
              +    Total all other employment, including self-employed,
                                      unpaid family workers and domestics (2000 census  
                                      data adjusted by monthly factors) 
              +    Total agricultural employment (agricultural wage and 
                                      salary employment adjusted for multiple job holding)

Unemployment  =  Total Unemployment Insurance (UI), Unemployment 
                                      Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE) and Railroad 
                                      Retirement Board (RRB) claims less earnings

              +    UI exhaustees (Unemployed individual who have received all
                                      of their unemployment compensation benefits and are no 
                                      longer eligible for any further benefits)

              +    New and reentrant unemployed (new workers such as youth 
                                      and people who previously worked in a full-time job 
                                      but were out of the labor force prior to beginning to 
                                      look for work)
