Please keep in mind: Unemployment rates at the county level are not seasonally adjusted because the sample size is too small to accommodate that additional analysis. Therefore, they should not be compared directly to the seasonally adjusted statewide rate that we announced last week.
At the top of the state map on which we’ve posted the county unemployment rates, we’ve posted the statewide, non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for direct comparison.
Here is the release schedule for the rest of 2015.
