   NOTE: Data refer to place of residence. Unemployment rates are in percent and are based on unrounded levels. Data for subnational 
areas reflect revised population controls and model reestimation. As a result, they will not add to U.S. totals. Data for Puerto Rico
are derived from a monthly household survey similar to the Current Population Survey.
