How to tell whether you have unemployment in New Jersey
It’s hard to tell if you have the nation’s longest-running unemployment problem if you don’t know if you’re in the middle of one.
For decades, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has counted jobless people in New York City, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island as unemployed.
That means those who can’t find jobs can find work at public colleges, government agencies and other employers.
“We don’t have a job count for the state of New Jersey,” said Linda Dufresne, a senior economist at the state Bureau of Economic Analysis.
“So when we do have job data, we know that there are people in the New Jersey unemployment rate that are actually unemployed.”
New Jersey is one of the states with the longest-run unemployment rate in the country, at 8.1 percent, according to a Bureau of Employment Statistics survey released Tuesday.
The rate has been rising since early 2014, but it’s still below the national average of 8.5 percent.
It’s also among the states that have had the most people in work in the past two years.
The New Jersey office of the U,S.
Department of Labor says it does not provide unemployment data in New England because of the state’s long-standing economic downturn.
New Jersey’s unemployment rate is at or near historic lows for the states most vulnerable.
Unemployment rates in Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire, among other states, have been at or above 7 percent for months.
The states with long-term unemployment rates are Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
New York City is the most populous city in the state with a population of 8 million, about one-quarter of the total.
It has been hit hard by the Great Recession and is the site of a massive cleanup effort for the Great Depression.
The city has struggled to fill job openings.
The office of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has called for a state unemployment measure to be added to the state budget in order to help offset the losses caused by the crisis.
Newark, a city of about 14,000, has had more than 1,100 people in employment for more than two months, according for the Office of Unemployment Insurance.
The mayor of Newburgh, New York, has called the state unemployment rate “unsustainable,” and has asked state officials to put a measure in the budget that would include New Jersey’s rate.
The mayor’s office did not respond to requests for comment.
The New York state Department of Economic Development did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the mayor’s request.
In the city of New Orleans, about 30,000 people have been in work since the Great Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, the unemployment rate has dropped to 7.7 percent, down from 9.9 percent the year before, according the state department of labor.
New Orleans is one the most heavily impacted by the storm, with nearly 100,000 homes damaged or destroyed and about 40,000 residents displaced.
The city’s unemployment was also below the New York State average for January, the most recent month for which the state does unemployment data.
The unemployment rate was 8.3 percent in February.
New Yorkers without a job can apply for unemployment benefits at the Department of Human Resources or unemployment offices in the city and the surrounding areas.
The unemployment rate can vary widely, according a Bureau to Monitor report released last week.
New York has the highest unemployment rate for people without a high school diploma in the nation, according, a report by the Economic Policy Institute, a Washington-based think tank.
A study from the Economic Research Service of the New School, a liberal think tank, says New Jersey ranks eighth among states in terms of the proportion of people without jobs, behind New York and Florida, but ahead of Texas, Maryland and Florida.
A spokesman for the New Orleans Economic Development Corporation said in an email that New Orleans has a long history of providing unemployment benefits to its citizens, but said the agency did not provide the data on which that was based.
The spokesman said the city did not have unemployment statistics on hand to evaluate New Orleans’ employment situation.
In New York , unemployment rates were at or below 7 percent in January, and the unemployment rates in other states have been declining.
The Office of Labor Standards Enforcement has not been able to provide an estimate for the number of unemployed people in states that include New York.
The office said it does have statistics for the U.,S.
Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, which includes a measure of unemployment.
The bureau did not offer data on how many people are counted as unemployed in New Hampshire and New Jersey, either.
The state Bureau for Economic Analysis said it doesn’t collect such data, either, because of its long-held practice of not releasing it.
A spokesperson for the Bureau of State Government said that although the state is responsible for unemployment, it does receive unemployment benefits from local government.
