We say these things everyday: “The unemployment rate is low.” “People are finding jobs faster.” “Employers can’t find enough workers.”
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Division of New Media, part of the U.S. Department of Labor, has made it easier to understand the key data behind these trends through videos.
The official BLS YouTube channel features short videos on important employment and labor market information, which is used for planning, guidance, and decision-making.
Here are the BLS videos we find most interesting at explaining complex facts in a clear, uncomplicated way:
- Understanding BLS Unemployment Statistics (length 1:24 minutes)
- Understanding BLS Employment Projections (length 3:17 minutes)
- A Look at Occupational Employment in the United States (length 3:30 minutes)
- Understanding BLS Projections of Occupational Separations (length 2:53 minutes)
