NOTE: Data refer to place of residence. Civilian labor force and number unemployed data are in thousands.

Due to the expansion of the Current Population Survey sample, estimates for June 2001 and later months may
not be fully comparable with those of earlier periods in the 31 States and the District of Columbia (as well as
their substate areas and the regions and divisions of which they are a part) that were directly affected by the
sample expansion. For additional information on the sample expansion, see "Expansion of the Current Population
Survey Sample Effective July 2001" in the August 2001 issue of Employment and Earnings from BLS.
