* NOTE that the percentages in the rows for the Labor Force, Not Employed individuals are NOT to be confused with unemployment rate. The unemployment rate is the percentage of individuals in the labor force who are not employed. The percentages in the rows are calculated for individuals 16-64 and individuals 21-64, regardless of labor force participation. To calculate the unemployment rate, which is NOT provided in the tables, divide the number of people who are unemployed by the number of people in the labor force, for each population of interest.

Note: Population does not include residents of institutional and noninstitutional group quarters. Read more about the ACS and group quarters
