Counties' jobless figures delayed

May 04, 2003|by JULIE E. GREENE

The release of March's unemployment rates for Maryland counties has been delayed, said Marco Merrick, spokesman for the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.

Typically, unemployment rate and work force information is released the first Friday of the month for the two months prior.

Unemployment rate information for January and February was delayed for the same reason. The U.S. Department of Labor has revamped the statistical method for calculating the unemployment rate in an effort to make the numbers more accurate.

March's unemployment rate is expected to be released in a few weeks, Merrick said.
