Local Area Unemployment Statistics

Tools and resources for assessing Local Area trends, conditions, and opportunities

The Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program is a federal-state cooperative effort, which produces monthly and annual employment, unemployment, and labor force data for approximately 7,500 Census regions and divisions, States, counties, metropolitan areas, and many cities, by place of residence areas.

The Economic Research and Analysis Division of Oklahoma Employment Security Commission (OESC) provides these estimates for the State of Oklahoma, metropolitan areas, counties, and many cities.

The interactive charts and tables below display both seasonally and non-seasonally adjusted LAUS data for Oklahoma and counties, metropolitan areas, and many cities. Current and historical data can be viewed and explored by using the tabs at the top of the frame. For more information, see Tableau Guide.




The Bureau of Labor Statistics' Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) website offers current and historical labor force and unemployment rate data at the statewide, MSA, and county levels for all U.S. States and territories. 

The Oklahoma Labor Force Data publication includes annual average civilian labor force data, employed, unemployed, and the unemployment rate for the state, counties and metropolitan statistical areas.
