Last February, Memphis reported 639,700 workers on non-farm payrolls.
Statistics were compiled from reports from the civilian labor force and unemployment data, both of which heavily relied on household surveys. The data is not seasonally adjusted.
Employment data is gleaned from an establishment survey that measures non-farm employment, hours and earnings by industry. The data is also based on payroll jobs and such factors as where the establishments are located.
Overall, Tennessee reported 3.077 million people employed on non-farm payrolls in February.
