News Release No.:

Date: February 14, 2018

California's employment and unemployment data for January will be released on Wednesday, March 7

NOTE TO EDITORS: As in previous years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics issues a benchmarked employment data series with its release of January data. This is an annual revision process in which monthly labor force and payroll employment by industry estimates are updated.

Because of the additional tasks surrounding the benchmarking process, California and all other states issue employment data at a later date than in a typical month.

The release of California labor force and industry employment data for January will occur on Wednesday, March 7.

The release of California labor force and industry employment data for February will occur on Friday, March 23.

The full release schedule for 2017 employment data is available on the Labor Market Information section of the California Employment Development Department website: www.labormarketinfo.edd.ca.gov/LMID/Data_Release_Schedule.html

More information on the annual benchmarking process is available online: www.labormarketinfo.edd.ca.gov/LMID/What_is_a_Benchmark.html
