2013 Vets Jobs Data Shows Mixed Picture BLS 2013 veterans data show that unemployment dropped for veterans between 2012 and 2013 (7.0 to 6.6 percent), although by less than the decline for non-veterans (7.9 to 7.2 percent). The share of veterans employed fell from 48.3 to 47.9 percent between 2012 and 2013. LMI Win-Win Network 1589 0  05/07/2014

Foreign- vs. Native-Born Workers: 2012 BLS data show identical 2012 annual unemployment rates for foreign-born vs. native-born Americans, with each experiencing about a 1 percentage point drop in unemployment, to an 8.1 percent level. However, partly due to less education, foreign-born full-time employees earned only 78 percent of their native-born compatriots. LMI Win-Win Network 539 0  07/31/2013

Race and Hispanic Workforce Data The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has issued its latest annual report on Labor Force Characteristics by Race and Ethnicity, with historical data from the early 1970s through 2011.

Some of data in this report are available on no other BLS Web site — for example, this is the only place where BLS publishes data on American Indians/Alaska Natives.

Changing UI Recipient Characteristics A U.S. Employment and Training Administration-funded study shows several major changes in the likelihood that different groups will receive unemployment insurance (UI), through an investigation of UI receipt over the 1988-2010 period. Here are the most notable findings. 1. Women are now about as likely as men to obtain UI, although they were 20 percent less likely to do so two decades ago. 2. Hispanics are now about as likely to receive UI as non-Hispanics, despite being almost 40 percent less likely to do so just a decade previously. In contrast, the likelihood of non-Whites obtaining UI has fallen since 2001, widening the gap with Whites. 3. Those younger than 25 are especially unlikely to receive UI — only about one-fifth as likely as those 25 or older, and their prospects for obtaining UI have changed little over the past two decades.

New Census Bureau Disability Data The U.S. Census Bureau has released Americans with Disabilities: 2010, based on the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). Persons aged 21 to 64 with disabilities were only about half as likely to be employed as those without disabilities (41 vs. 79 percent). The percentage of those with disabilities who were employed dropped by 4.5 points from 2005 to 2010, although this reduction was no different from those without disabilities.
