A topic that comes up now and again is how students impact the local labor force, especially college students. Direct from the Bureau of Labor is the graphic below on labor force participation by school enrollment status. This is for the nation, but still it shows that indeed students are counted in the labor force just like others if they are currently not working and are looking for work. If not looking for work currently, then they would nominally not be part of the labor force in the first place.
Given that the enrollment counts at local institutions of higher education have been ramping up over the last decade, and a roughly 50% labor force participation it makes a difference in local labor force stats... especially for the city proper.
