State unionization rates

Marie-Eve Augier and I have a new CEPR Issue Brief (pdf) with data on the size and composition of the union workforce in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

This figure, taken from the brief, shows the share of each state’s workforce that was a member of a union or covered by a collective bargaining agreement in 2011.

The full report also contains data, by state, on the number of union workers and their racial and gender composition. The  data update some of the tables and figures that originally appeared in CEPR’s 2012 “Unions of the States” (pdf) report.
