With recent economic booms and busts, unemployment is one of the most often read about statistics. Some parts of the country have recovered much more than others. The unemployment rate is measured among people aged 16+ that are in the civilian labor force. To be considered unemployed, someone has to be actively looking for work and not in the military.

The New Jersey percent unemployed from the latest estimates is 5.3% and has fallen 11.7% from 6.0%.
