Unemployment data come from two different sources: the American Community Survey (ACS) and the Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS). Employment and unemployment estimates from the ACS and LAUS can differ because the surveys use different questions, samples, and collection methods. To learn more about each source, visit the Unemployment section of our Metadata page.
