County-level Data

The section below titled Orange County Florida Employment: ACS 5-Year and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) section below shows two sets of employment county-level data. The ACS 5-Year (2010-2014) Survey data are from the American Community Survey and were published Dec. 3rd 2015. The Bureau of Labor Statistics county-level data were published on April 15th 2016.

Counties may qualify if the unemployment rate is at least 150% of the national unemployment average. It is important to know that there are two national unemployment averages with the BLS being the most commonly known and used. The American Community Survey (ACS) also supplies their own estimates and historically a higher percentage than BLS figures. This report takes both the ACS and BLS county and national unemployment under consideration. From our understanding and research, both have been used by petitioners and approved for designation.

Tract-level Data and Eligibility

Data: The Results Using Census Share (Disaggregation) Methodology section below is a combination of the most recent tract-level ACS 5-Year study and BLS county-level unemployment. These two numbers reflect the most recent conditions and may contradict ACS 5-year eligibility. Each state is different as to what unemployment values they can/will accept; so, if one "Census-Share (Disaggregation)" number does not qualify, the ACS unemployment rate may help you make a better case when filing for a designation letter.

Eligibility:Any tract inside a county with high unemployment automatically qualifies regardless of the tract's unemployment rate.

There may be a number of additional options such as City and Rural options available. Feel free to contact us for assistance.

Orange County (Florida) Employment: ACS 5-Year (2010-2014) and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)

New! For counties, the ACS 5-Year (2010-2014) and the BLS 2015 results are the most current data. Tracts within a high unemployment county may be considered eligible by the state and the USCIS. The BLS line in the table is preferred by many states that mandate the census-share method such as Florida and California; however, the ACS row in the table show the most recent estimates spanning over a five years and may be considered by the state and/or the USCIS.   Please note that this summary only applies to Orange County and census tract(s) may qualify, see next section for details.

Source County FIPS Population Labor Force Employed Unemployed Unemployment Rate Qualifies?
ACS 12095 955,022 650,984 583,214 67,770 10.4% No
BLS 12095 n/a 688,018 654,304 33,714 4.9% No

Results Using Census Share (Disaggregation) Methodology (Most Recent Data)

New April, 15th, 2016!  The values in the table reflect the census share disaggregation method using the ACS 5-Year (2010-2014) and the average county values provided by the BLS on April 15th 2016.

The list of census tracts reflect the result of the changing employment conditions since the ACS 5-year study. If employment improved since then, the newer average unemployment may disqualify an otherwise ACS-qualified targeted employment area. Please check with your state or contact us as the guidelines as to what numbers (ACS-5 Year above or the Census Share) are different state to state.

IMPORTANT: Please verify that your project is in the "(Site)" tract in the table. You may verify that tract -- it was the first selected EB-5 tract on the incentives map.

ACS 5-Year (2011-2015) Data

New for 2016! The data in the table are from the most recent American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year (2010-2014) and are the tracts selected on the map. On December 3rd 2015, the ACS 5-year (2011-2015) was released. The unemployment rates in this section may not be preferred by the state and many states prefer unemployment rates generated by the census-share disaggregation methodology -- please see the section above.

IMPORTANT: Please verify that your project is in the "(Site)" tract below. You may verify that the site tract is 12095018900 -- it was the first selected EB-5 tract on the incentives map.

NOTE: The site tract is qualified by itself and no other tracts are required. Is it possible that the first tract in your map selection isn't where your project is located? To correct please return to the map and enter your project's address. You will need to ensure that the address appears inside the first selected EB-5 tract.
