I thought that the St Louis FED was the ultimative resource for macro data, but even they don't appear to have a time series of state level unemployment numbers for the United States.

Who does?

  • $\begingroup$ @Anton I also found that. I should specify im looking for time series. $\endgroup$ – FooBar Mar 5 '15 at 3:12
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for not having a specific link, but BEA has data on employment and CPS includes microdata on employment status. I hope someone will give a better source. $\endgroup$ – Anton Tarasenko Mar 5 '15 at 15:24
  • $\begingroup$ BLS does provide time series. I am looking at a decade of monthly data for Delaware both seasonally adjusted and not right now. $\endgroup$ – Jason Nichols Mar 5 '15 at 19:37

DE Unemployment Rate Time Series

The Bureau of Labor Statistics Local Area Unemployment series of data provides monthly figures at the state level from 1976-2014 downloadable as Excel, CSV, or images.

I looked into the following Series:

LASST100000000000003
LASST100000000000004
LASST100000000000005
LASST100000000000006

LAUST100000000000003
LAUST100000000000004
LAUST100000000000005
LAUST100000000000006

Where LAU meant not seasonally adjusted, and LAS was seasonal, with the 3,4,5,6 standing for labor force, employment, unemployment, and unemployment rate, respectively, and the 10000000000000 (I believe) indicating the region I chose (in this example, the State of Delaware).

You can use the One Screen Search Tool to find whatever you need.
