Definitions: Here, we report the prime-age employment for New Hampshire and each county across 2012–2016. Following the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we define the prime-age population as those between age 25 and 54. The prime-age employment rate is also broken down by sex. The prime-age employment rate, or the percent of the prime-age population that is currently employed(either parttime or fulltime, in any kind of work for pay), has benefits over traditional measurements of employment and unemployment in that people who leave the labor force (i.e. non-workers who stop looking for work during recessions, because they are discouraged and can’t find work, to care for sick relatives, or for many other reasons) are excluded from these more common measures.
