Description
Abstract Civilian labor force data consists of the number of employed persons, the number of unemployed persons, an unemployment rate and the total count of both employed and unemployed persons (total civilian labor force). Labor force refers to an estimate of the number of persons, 16 years of age and older, classified as employed or unemployed. The civilian labor force, which is presented in these data tables, excludes the Armed Forces, i.e., the civilian labor force equals employed civilians plus the unemployed. Employed persons are those individuals, 16 years of age and older, who did any work at all during the survey week as paid employees, in their own business, profession or farm, or who worked 15 hours or more as unpaid workers in a family operated business. Also counted as employed are those persons who had jobs or businesses from which they were temporarily absent because of illness, bad weather, vacation, labor-management dispute, or personal reasons. Individuals are counted only once even though they may hold more than one job. Unemployed persons comprise all persons who did not work during the survey week but who made specific efforts to find a job within the previous four weeks and were available for work during the survey week (except for temporary illness). Also included as unemployed are those who did not work at all, were available for work, but were not actively seeking work because they were either waiting to be called back to a job from which they were laid off or waiting to report to a new job within 30 days. The unemployment rate represents the number of unemployed persons as a percent of the total civilian labor force.
Purpose To expand the series of local economic indicators. Civilian labor force variables are key economic indicators for regional economic measurement and analysis. These employment data tables provide the user with a database that can be used to chart changes in county economies.
Supplemental Information These particular tables provide data for New Mexico as a whole and all counties in the state. These tables, with names ranging from A00043 through A00046, provide annual data from 1983 through 2012 for the following topics: total civilian labor force (Table A00043), employed persons (Table A00045), unemployed persons (Table A00046), and the unemployment rate (Table A00044). These files, along with file-specific descriptions (in Word and text formats) are available in a single zip file.
