Due to methodological changes implemented in 2011 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, seasonally adjusted unemployment rate estimates for metropolitan statistical areas are no longer available on the same schedule as statewide estimates. These estimates are now scheduled to be released about two weeks following the release of the statewide estimates.
We will continue to publish not seasonally adjusted estimates of labor force, total employment, number of unemployed and the unemployment rate for Colorado counties, cities and metropolitan statistical areas on the same schedule as the statewide estimates.
