  • Intermediate Application of Data Sets: BLS Unemployment Data

    Did you know that there are at least three sources of unemployment statistics in the United States? In this APDU webinar you’ll learn about the three primary data sources—Current Population Survey (CPS), Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS), and American Community Survey (ACS)—and how they differ. Then we’ll explore how to access the official national and state unemployment statistics, based on CPS.
