The unemployment rate and labor force data described on this page (and linked above) comes from the Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) program, which is a Federal-State cooperative effort in which monthly and annual estimates of total labor force, employment, and unemployment are prepared. These estimates are key indicators of local economic conditions.

The Labor Market Information (LMI) Division at Iowa Workforce Development (IWD) provides these estimates for the state of Iowa, its counties, metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) and various regions across the State.
