Youth Employment Rate

The youth employment data is obtained from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a monthly survey of households conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau for the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The disability employment data are not seasonally adjusted; therefore, the data is not adjusted for school closings like summer break. Nevertheless, these numbers provide the most accurate data available of the national employment rate of youth.
