11 TEA Calculation Changes The State of Iowa TEA Designating Authority, is considering a change in the method by which unemployment will be calculated Every year new county and national unemployment data are released and updates are required to the corresponding census tract unemployment rates This year several States are not only updating the data, but the base information used to calculate this data is being changed In years past the 2000 census provided detail for the census tract unemployment rates This data was updated to the current year by applying the Bureau of Labor Statistics Methodology known as census share disaggregation Rather than continuing this process, many States are going to change the base year from 2000, to an average of the last five years The purpose of EB-5 is to identify and assist areas of high unemployment Using an average diminishes the effects of unemployment across the county
