Note: there are certain limitations in using monthly data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Not all information technology occupation and industry categories are
available on a monthly basis so this data should be viewed as a proxy. Additionally, there tends to be higher levels of volatility and variance in monthly data, so CompTIA
advises viewing workforce trends over a longer period of time.

Note: non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate as defined by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics captures individuals actively looking for work in the
past four weeks. Furloughed workers may have an expectation for returning to their employer and therefore are not actively looking and not counted in
unemployment rate figures.

Not all information technology occupation and industry categories are available on a monthly basis so this data should be viewed as a proxy. Additionally, there tends to be higher levels of volatility and variance in monthly data, so CompTIA advises viewing workforce trends over a longer period of time.
