Created on 8/21/2017 2:06:21 PM (GMT)(GMT)

UPDATE: The Bureau of Labor Statistice release 2016 unemployment averages for Blount County in April.

The sections below outline two sets of Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) for Blount County Tennessee and the EB-5 program. The ACS 5-Year is from the American Community Survey and the more recent data provided by the project's city, Blount County, Tennessee to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In the report below, if the "Qualifies" column indicates "Yes" , then Blount County qualifies by either the ACS or the BLS (or both). Please note that if the ACS data qualifies and the more recent BLS data indicates does not, there is an indication that employment conditions are improving and that a project in Blount County may not be granted a designation letter -- or depending on project type, target areas, and Tennessee requirements, an EB-5 project may considered by either ACS or BLS unemployment rate during the approval processes.
