This webinar will explore recent labor market trends and developments across the United States, and in California, using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ household and payroll surveys, including supplemental data on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. A short update will be given on plans for the next contingent worker supplement to the Current Population Survey, which provides data on the labor force, employment, unemployment, persons not in the labor force, hours of work, earnings, and other demographic and labor force characteristics.
