Qualityinfo.org hosts the employment departmentís monthly announcement of the stateís unemployment rate (itís due to announce Mayís rate on Tuesday), information about regional economic conditions and analysis by the departmentís economists. Businesses, lawmakers and others use the data to make decisions about strategy and policy.
