Oops. Wrong Graph Last Friday for 25- to 54-Years-Old Participation Rate


Last Friday I posted the incorrect chart for the 25 to 54 employment-population ratio and participation rate (ht Kevin). Here is the correct graph.

Prime (25 to 54 Years Old) Participation

Since the overall participation rate is impacted by both cyclical (recession) and demographic (aging population, younger people staying in school) reasons, here is the employment-population ratio for the key working age group: 25 to 54 years old.

The 25 to 54 participation rate decreased in July to 83.4% from 83.5% in June, and the 25 to 54 employment population ratio was unchanged at 80.9% from 80.9% the previous month.

Both are above the pre-pandemic levels and suggest all of the prime age workers have returned to the labor force.
