Arkansas' January Unemployment Rate Steady at 3.7 Percent

Arkansas' January Unemployment Rate Steady at 3.7 Percent”

Due to rounding, though, the January unemployment rate remained unchanged from December, according to the labor department. The current estimate is 9,100 lower than in January 2017. Average weekly earnings for all private sector employees were up 3.5 percent from in January compared to January 2017.

"Illinois job growth over the past year has been spurred by a resurgence in manufacturing", Illinois Department of Employment Security Director Jeff Mays said. Many employers have said they're unable to add jobs because there is a lack of available talent with the right qualifications.

For example, the jobless rate was listed as having dropped to a 16-year low of 4.1 percent from July through October.

Most of 2017 brought good news for Flagler County on the unemployment front, with employment rising by about 1,300, the labor force adding about 1,000 working-age people, and unemployment falling by about 700 overall.

Over-the-year, nonfarm payroll employment increased by 47,100 jobs with the largest gains in these industry sectors in January: Manufacturing (20,200); Leisure and Hospitality (13,900); and Education and Health Services (6,200). Local, state and federal government jobs also lost jobs over the past year.

In related data, the EDD reported that there were 342,480 people receiving regular Unemployment Insurance benefits during the January survey week. Whereas, in quarterly terms, total employment increased with 0.9 % compared to the third quarter of 2017.

California's eleven industry sectors added a total of 400,100 jobs over the year.

Trade, transportation and utilities declined by 2,600, with retail trade suffering a 2,300 hit, due in part to recent layoffs and closures in the sector. Lee County's unemployment rate jumped from a below average 3.4 in December to 3.9 in January.
