Labor Force Participation Rate of Those 25-to-64 Years Old

Loading Data...

Visualization Notes:

The labor force participation rate of those 25-to-64 years old was lower than the U.S. average in Arizona in each year from 2005 through 2011. The differential between Arizona and the national average increased from 1.6 percentage points in 2005 to 3.2 percentage points in 2011. Presumably, the deeper and longer recession in Arizona caused more Arizonans to stop looking for work, causing them to not be counted as workforce participants.
