County Labor Force Estimates

A robust labor force is an essential component of a healthy economy. The labor force consists of the civilian population age 16 or older that is working (employed) or looking for work (unemployed). The labor force participation rate equals the percentage of population age 16 or older who are engaged in the labor force.
