Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of the U.S. Department of Labor, provides a broad range of data about employment and unemployment, pay and benefits, productivity, time use, etc. Look at their list of available surveys. Tables of employment and unemployment by state, county, and metropolitan area are produced from the Local Area Uemployment Statistics (LAUS) program. The Bureau publishes various employment and unemployment statistics.

Also, for historical statistics on the American labor force go to the Appendix of the Report on the American Workforce 2001.


The International Labour Organization (ILO), produces ILOSTAT, which includes labor statistics and estimates from over 200 countries from 1969 to the present, as well as a number of other databases on labor standards, legislation and literature.
