        METROPOLITAN AREA EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT — JULY 2012

Unemployment rates were lower in July than a year earlier in 305 of the 372 metropolitan areas, higher
in 52 areas, and unchanged in 15 areas, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Seven areas
recorded jobless rates of at least 15.0 percent, while 18 areas registered rates of less than 5.0 percent.
Two hundred seventy-six metropolitan areas reported over-the-year increases in nonfarm payroll
employment, 93 reported decreases, and 3 had no change. The national unemployment rate in July was
8.6 percent, not seasonally adjusted, down from 9.3 percent a year earlier.

Metropolitan Area Unemployment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

In July, 67 metropolitan areas reported jobless rates of at least 10.0 percent, down from 112 areas a
year earlier, while 94 areas posted rates below 7.0 percent, up from 68 areas in July of last year. Yuma,
Ariz., and El Centro, Calif., recorded the highest unemployment rates in July 2012, 31.2 and 29.9
percent, respectively. Bismarck, N.D., registered the lowest unemployment rate, 2.5 percent. A total of
216 areas recorded July unemployment rates below the U.S. figure of 8.6 percent, 151 areas reported
rates above it, and 5 areas had rates equal to that of the nation. (See table 1 and the map.)

The largest over-the-year unemployment rate decrease in July was registered in El Centro, Calif. (-2.7
percentage points). Nine additional areas had decreases of 2.0 percentage points or more. Elmira, N.Y.,
reported the largest over-the-year jobless rate increase (+1.5 percentage points). Two other areas had
increases of at least 1.0 percentage point from a year earlier.

Among the 49 metropolitan areas with a Census 2000 population of 1 million or more, the highest
unemployment rates in July were registered in Las Vegas-Paradise, Nev., and Riverside-San
Bernardino-Ontario, Calif., 12.9 and 12.7 percent, respectively. Five additional large areas posted rates
of 10.0 percent or more. The lowest jobless rate among the large areas was recorded in Oklahoma City,
Okla., 4.8 percent. Forty-two large areas reported over-the-year unemployment rate decreases, six
registered increases, and one had no change. Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Fla., experienced the
largest unemployment rate decline from July 2011 (-1.9 percentage points). Twenty-one other large
areas reported rate decreases of at least 1.0 percentage point. No large area recorded an over-the-year
rate increase as large as 1.0 percentage point.
Metropolitan Division Unemployment (Not Seasonally Adjusted)

Eleven of the most populous metropolitan areas are made up of 34 metropolitan divisions, which are
essentially separately identifiable employment centers. In July 2012, Detroit-Livonia-Dearborn, Mich.,
registered the highest jobless rate among the divisions, 13.4 percent. The next highest rate was recorded
in Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, Calif., 11.9 percent. Framingham, Mass., reported the lowest
division rate, 5.0 percent. (See table 2.)

Twenty-seven of the metropolitan divisions recorded over-the-year jobless rate decreases in July, while
seven registered increases. West Palm Beach-Boca Raton-Boynton Beach, Fla., posted the largest rate
decline from a year earlier (-1.7 percentage points). Thirteen other divisions had decreases of 1.0
percentage point or more. No division reported an unemployment rate increase over the year greater than
0.8 percentage point.

In 5 of the 11 metropolitan areas that contain divisions, the ranges between the highest and lowest
division jobless rates were 2.0 percentage points or more in July. Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, Mass.-
N.H., recorded the largest rate difference among its divisions, 5.8 percentage points (Lawrence-
Methuen-Salem, Mass.-N.H., 10.8 percent, compared with Framingham, Mass., 5.0 percent).

1 Area boundaries do not reflect official OMB definitions.
p Preliminary
NOTE: Data are counts of jobs by place of work. Estimates subsequent to the current benchmark are preliminary and will be revised when new information becomes available.
Area definitions are based on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 10-02, dated December 1, 2009, and available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm. Areas in the six
New England states are Metropolitan New England City and Town Areas (NECTAs), while areas in other states are county-based. Some metropolitan areas lie in two or more
states. They are listed under the state that appears first in their titles. Davenport-Moline-Rock Island, Iowa-Ill. is the exception since it is listed under Illinois for operational
reasons.

NOTE: Data are counts of jobs by place of work. Estimates subsequent to the current benchmark are preliminary and will be revised when new information becomes available. Area definitions are based
on Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 10-02, dated December 1, 2009, and available at www.bls.gov/lau/lausmsa.htm. Areas in the six New England states are Metropolitan New England City
and Town Areas (NECTAs), while areas in other states are county-based. Some metropolitan areas lie in two or more states. They are listed under the state that appears first in their titles. Some divisions
lie in more than one state, and some, like Camden, N.J., are totally outside the states under which their metropolitan areas are listed.
