We track how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected employment levels across the country. The national unemployment rate hit a record high of 14.7% in April 2020, the highest rate since the Great Depression.
We've used unemployment data provided by The Bureau of Labor Statistics to narrate this story.
The unemployment rate is defined as the number of unemployed people as a percentage of the labor force.
Labor force is the sum of the employed and the unemployed. In other words, the labor force level is the number of people who are either working or actively seeking work.
