March 10, 2003|by JULIE E. GREENE

The release of unemployment numbers for states and their counties is being delayed while national labor officials review statistical methods to make sure the numbers are as accurate as can be, a Maryland labor official said Friday.

The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation normally releases preliminary unemployment and labor force figures on a county level on the first Friday of the month.

The state figures are expected next week, but the county level numbers may not be available until at least March 20, said Marco Merrick, spokesman for the Maryland labor department.
