About This Statistic

This statistic shows the employment rate in the United States. Employed persons consist of: persons who did any work for pay or profit during the survey reference week; persons who did at least 15 hours of unpaid work in a family-operated enterprise; and persons who were temporarily absent from their regular jobs because of illness, vacation, bad weather, industrial dispute, or various personal reasons. The employment-population ratio represents the proportion of the civilian non-institutional population that is employed. In 2016, the U.S. employment rate stood at 59.7 percent. The employment rate for men at this time was 65.8 percent, whereas it was 54.1 percent for women.
