Is it possible to get the unemployment rate by census tract level? I could not find it in the census reporter.
That's a measure you'd have to calculate yourself.table B23025: Unemployed / table B23025: In Labor Force
Robin, you can get table B23025 for all US tracts at once on the MCDC site.
Use the dataset ustracts21_24 for table B23025: https…
Yikes! I see what you mean. I think I will leave it out of my project and stick with what I have. Thanks!
PolicyMap has this pre-baked, if you have access to it: https://plcy.mp/H3XG8Vw
Thanks Bernie. Unfortunately PolicyMap will not let me signup.
Hi Robin. I work at PolicyMap and would be happy to help you sign up and subscribe. Feel free to message me directly! In the meantime, if you would like to explore the unemployment data by census tract, our latest mapping platform (which we are just in the process of releasing) will let you see the values without needing to sign in: https://www.policymap.com/newmaps#/. To find the unemployment data you can either search in the data search bar or go to the Economy Menu > Employment and Unemployment > Unemployment > Census ACS Civilians Unemployed. The shortcut link that Bernie posted above sends you to our old platform which is still accurate but lacks some of the new features.
Found it! Thank you so much!
