Demographics of Employment and Unemployment in Maine

This data is derived from Current Population Survey (CPS). The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) partners with the US Census Bureau to conduct the survey of approximately 60,000 households on a monthly basis. Approximately 800 of these households are in Maine. The survey asks about employment and unemployment or actively seeking work, educational attainment, reasons for unemployment, and others factor to provide a more comprehensive picture of the labor force. Additional information about CPS is available here.

Note: Data for demographic groups are not shown when they do not meet BLS publication standards of reliability for the particular area based on the sample in that area. Items may not sum to totals due to rounding.
