Unemployment rates by metropolitan area
The unemployment rate measures the share of workers in the labor force who do not currently have a job but are actively looking for work within metropolitan areas.
According to the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES), "The unemployed include those who:
• lost their jobs involuntarily;
• quit their jobs;
• entered the labor market for the first time or have re-entered the labor market after a period of absence;
• have been laid off but expect to be recalled.
The unemployment rate is the number unemployed expressed as a percent of the total civilian labor force (unemployment rate = unemployed/labor force X 100)."
See IDES for further information.
