Chart uploaded on Thursday.

This chart shows the unemployment rate in Albany County, along with the City of Albany and the Towns of Bethlehem, Colonie, and Guilderland from January 2000 to December 2016. Due to a new estimating methodology implemented in January 2005, sub-state labor force statistics from January 2000 to present are not comparable to data from earlier years.

Labor force estimates provide the most up-to-date estimates of persons employed and unemployed by place of residence. Labor force data include estimates of the civilian labor force, the number employed, the number unemployed, and the unemployment rate. Labor force figures are available for New York State, labor market regions, metropolitan areas, counties, and municipalities of at least 25,000. Estimates are developed and distributed monthly. Labor force data for the nation and areas outside of New York State are available at http://www.bls.gov/lau/home.htm.
