Average Employer Contribution Rates by State

This data is produced twice yearly. Estimated rates are from state-reported data contained in the Unemployment Insurance Data Base (UIDB). The estimated data is based on estimated contributions, taxable wages, and total wages. Final actual rates are produced after the end of the year based on data supplied by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, with final contributions, taxable wages, and total wages for the year. Rates are shown for each state as a percentage of taxable wages and also as a percentage of total wages.
