Unemployment rate in all 55 West Virginia counties increase in November

Unemployment rate in all 55 West Virginia counties increase in November

Employment in Education and Health Services increased by 8,200 positions.

Smith said the dramatic story for Louisiana employment has been in the downstream refining and petrochemical sector, which is where the new capital expenditures are occurring.

"The tight labor force supply will likely have the effect of moderating the growth rates we have seen for the past few years", he said.

Indiana's unemployment rate stands at 3.7 percent for November and remains lower than the national rate of 4.1 percent.

The Amarillo and Midland Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) recorded the month's lowest unemployment rate among Texas MSAs with a non-seasonally adjusted rate of 2.6 percent, followed by the Austin-Round Rock, College Station-Bryan and Lubbock MSAs with a rate of 2.7 percent. Total employed also rose by just under 1 percent, up 6,658 to 811,704. Typically, the county unemployment rate needs to change a half percentage point or more "before we can say that things got better or rose".

St. Lawrence County tied with Oswego County for the fourth highest unemployment rate last month at 6.4 percent.

Of the 468,000 working age Idahoans (36 percent) not in the labor force, 95 percent could be categorized as not looking for a job and 5 percent as wanting a job, further indicating a tightening labor market.

Five out of the nine counties in this region had the 10 best unemployment rates in the state, led by Mercer County (first, 2.7 percent), Putnam County (third, 3 percent), Auglaize County (sixth, 3.1 percent), Hancock County (seventh, 3.1 percent) and Van Wert (10th, 3.4). Losses were partially offset by a gain in the Construction (4,900) sector. Much of the job growth over the past year was in manufacturing (+150 jobs) and leisure and hospitality (+60 jobs).

Dubois: 2.4 percent, down from 2.5 percent.

From November 2016 to November 2017, all 15 areas added jobs, with the largest percentage gains in the Barnstable, New Bedford, Boston-Cambridge-Newton, Haverhill-Newburyport-Amesbury, Springfield, and Lynn-Saugus-Marblehead areas. Wilson County's rate in November represented 1,880 unemployed workers compared to a 69,750-person workforce and does not include those who did not file with the labor department or no longer receive benefits.
