Employment, Unemployment, and Housing

Excel files of available employment and housing data are listed below by states and metro areas (metropolitan statistical areas and divisions) and include data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the Department of Labor (DOL), and the Census Bureau. As of July 2015, the metro areas listed below reflect new delineations as was determined by the Office of Management and Budget in 2013. A brief discussion of the geography changes in the three-state region can be downloaded.

We gather payroll employment data (BLS), household employment data (BLS), and unemployment insurance claims data (DOL) for the U.S., Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. All data are seasonally adjusted: The BLS seasonally adjusts all employment data for the U.S. and the three states, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia seasonally adjusts the unemployment insurance claims data.

In addition, payroll and household employment data for the metro areas in the three-state region are available on this website. Household employment data for all metro areas are seasonally adjusted by the BLS. Total nonfarm payroll employment series for metro areas are seasonally adjusted by the BLS except for newly defined or redefined areas, which are seasonally adjusted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. All sector employment series for all metro areas are also seasonally adjusted by the Philadelphia Fed.

Housing permits (Census Bureau) for the nation, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and the metro areas within our three-state area are available and are seasonally adjusted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
