Current Civilian Labor Force Estimates

Would you like to receive notification
when Civilian Labor Force Estimates are released? Please e-mail us or call (614) 752-9494 and ask to be added to the e-mail list.

Ohio's civilian labor force estimates are released monthly on Fridays. County and major city data are released the following Tuesdays. See Press Release Dates for details.

Note: Effective with the publication of January 2015 preliminary estimates on March 6, 2015, the methodology for producing civilian labor force estimates changed. Q & A on the 2015 Redesign can be found here.

In addition, new delineations for metropolitan areas, metropolitan divisions, micropolitan areas, and new LAUS small labor market areas were implemented with the 2015 redesign.

Due to the methodology redesign and change in geographical delineations, historical series may not be comparable for all years. For details about series comparability click here.
