NOTE: It looks like there won't be any metro employment/unemployment updates for the next few months. The BLS is reworking the data based on new OMB geographic delineations and won't be able to release updates until at least (and probably later than) April 21st. More here. I'll update the data as soon as it's available. Sorry folks.
