Census Bureau to Update Employment Numbers

The Census Bureau's monthly Current Population Survey — which dates from 1942 — is the longest-running household survey in the country. Census Bureau field representatives ask selected households questions relevant to the U.S. labor force, such as their employment status, hours worked, earnings, age, sex, race, marital status, educational attainment, occupation and industry. From these answers come estimates of the unemployment rate released monthly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Internet address: <http://www.census.gov/cps>.
