Unemployment News Release
Monthly release of statewide seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted estimates of the number employed and the number unemployed in the state. The state unemployment rate is then calculated based on these numbers.
Updated 2014 estimates for New Hampshire statewide labor force statistics, including the annual unemployment rate.
Benchmarking is the process of re-estimating statistics as more complete data become available. The Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program benchmarks prior years’ estimates annually.
Annual revisions of LAUS estimates primarily reflect updated population demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Trends in revised employment data from the CES and QCEW programs and updated information regarding those filing for unemployment insurance benefits are also incorporated into the annual LAUS revisions.
Alternative Measures of Labor Underutilization
Based on Current Population Survey data, these measures have been developed to address additional issues such as discouraged workers and involuntary part-time workers.
Seasonally Adjusted Metropolitan Area Estimates
Notice: Due to methodological changes and conversion to the 2010-based Office of Management and Budget (OMB) delineations, seasonally adjusted metropolitan area unemployment statistics will not be updated for several months. The seasonally adjusted metropolitan area data series will be replaced at that time with data that reflect methodological enhancements and re-estimation based on the new geography. The tables below contain data from the 2000-based OMB delineations and are not comparable with labor market area statistics that have been released on March 3, 2015 and after.

Mass Layoff Statistics
A Federal-State cooperative effort which uses a standardized approach to identify, describe, and track the effects of major job cutbacks. Information is collected for establishments which have at least 50 initial claims for unemployment insurance (UI) filed against them during a consecutive 5-week period to determine the duration, total number of persons separated, the reasons for these separations, and recall expectations. This information is used to analyze economic trends and to aid in the development of programs that may benefit those workers who are displaced from their employment.
