Below is a table listing how many jobs have been lost in your state due to NAFTA, according to a narrow set of data from the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program (TAA).
TAA is a narrow program, only covering a subset of workers who lose jobs to trade. It does not provide a comprehensive list of facilities or jobs that have been offshored or lost to import competition.
A report by the pro-NAFTA Peterson Institute for International Economics estimated that fewer than 10 percent of workers who lost their jobs in industries facing heavy import competition under NAFTA received assistance under TAA.
While the TAA data represent a significant undercount of trade-related job losses, it is the only government program that provides information about job losses officially certified by the U.S. government to be trade related.
