Miami-Dade County Labor Market Reports
The Labor Market Report is a monthly publication that identifies current labor market conditions and trends. The reports cover key indicators of the labor market, such as payroll employment by major industry sectors, including labor force and unemployment rates.
The reports provide the latest data release from the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics and the state Agency for Workforce Innovation, along with an analysis of the key factors driving changes on our local labor market.
The January 2014 report shows:
- Private sector industries led the growth of employment in 2013, increasing jobs by 26,900 (a 3% growth rate in 2013).
- Total nonfarm payroll employment, including public sector jobs, added 22,400 jobs between January 2013 and December 2013, representing a 2.2% growth in jobs in 2013.
- The unemployment rate in Miami-Dade continued to decline at the end of 2013, and by December the County’s unemployment rate had fallen to 7.5%.
- Although progress in 2013 was made in terms of a decline in unemployed residents and the unemployment rate, 60,400 residents were unemployed longer than 26 weeks. Residents who were unemployed for more than one year accounted for one-third of all unemployed residents.
