Labor Force Participation Rate by County, 2011-15

Layer displays the labor force participation rate based on data from the 2011-15 American Community Survey. The labor force participation rate is the percentage of the population that is in the labor force. This metric is different from employment rates, which report the percentage of the labor force that is employed. A person who is in the labor force is either actively employed or actively seeking work. Those who are not in the labor force include persons who are going to school or who are retired, persons with family responsibilities keeping them from employment, and discouraged workers.
