Employment

At work or out of work? Since 1942, the Census Bureau has asked employment questions for the Bureau of Labor Statistics in the Current Population Survey. The monthly unemployment rate - a principal economic indicator - comes from the 60,000 households that we survey each month. We also get employment information from many of our economic surveys.
