Monthly employment report
The monthly employment report is a comprehensive report on Washington’s job market. We report the unemployment rate statewide and for the nation, the number of people in Washington’s workforce and the number of jobs by industry. Open the October 2021 monthly employment report (State and Seattle Metropolitan Division only). Report charts and tables are also available. For county-level data, see the map below for county unemployment rates. Alternate measures of labor underutilization (U6) are discussed here. For more charts and graphs at the national level, see the BLS Employment Situation report.
