2021 schedule of employment data, unemployment rates press releases

BATON ROUGE —The Louisiana Workforce Commission has announced the schedule for its 2021 monthly press releases of employment and unemployment data.

The release of statewide nonfarm industry employment data and unemployment rates coincides with the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly release of data for all states.

In most months, the LWC will release two separate press releases. The first contains both seasonally and not-seasonally adjusted nonfarm employment, civilian labor force and the unemployment rate for the State. The second monthly release will publish the not-seasonally-adjusted civilian labor force data for the nine metropolitan statistical areas and all 64 parishes. There will be only one press release for the 2021 January data that will include all data items in one release.

The descriptions of the 2021 press release dates listed below reflect the type of civilian labor force data for that release and are subject to change:
