Because initial annual unemployment rate numbers are preliminary and subject to revision as more data are received by BLS, the source for each year is the most recent DOES publication covering that year. For most years the ward-specific data are pulled from does.dc.gov/sites/default/files/dc/sites/does/page_content/attachments/2002-2016%20Unemployment%20Rate%20by%20Ward%20Annual%20Averages.pdf. Citywide numbers and ward-specific numbers for more recent years are pulled from the most recent annual reports linked to through does.dc.gov/page/labor-statistics (with the 2019 report being available at does.dc.gov/sites/default/files/dc/sites/does/publication/attachments/DOES%20ANNUAL%20REPORT%202019%20WEB%20%28reduced%29.pdf and the 2020 report at https://does.dc.gov/sites/default/files/dc/sites/does/publication/attachments/DOES%20Talent%20Forward%20DC-%20Annual%20Economic%20and%20Workforce%20Report%20FY2020.pdf).
