Washington unemployment rate drops to 4.6 percent

This was down from 3.8 percent in March and down from 4.1 percent in April 2016.

This is also the third consecutive month that New Mexico's unemployment rate stands at 6.7 percent.

Bamberg County posted the highest unemployment rate of 6.8 percent, while Lexington County recorded the lowest rate at 3.0 percent.

In March the state's unemployment rate was 4.9 percent, and in April 2016 it was 5.5 percent.

The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for the Jacksonville area went from 4.2 percent in March to 3.84 percent in April.

Donald Klepper-Smith, chief economist and director of research for New Haven-based DataCore Partners, said CT has lost jobs in four out of the last seven months. Statewide, 679,150 were employed and 18,850 unemployed in April for a total seasonally adjusted labor force of 698,000. In addition to the low rate, the state has added 11,000 jobs in April.

"This continues to indicate that workers are entering or rejoining the labor force and many are finding work", Condon said in a statement.

Washington state's unemployment rate dropped to 4.6 percent last month, a rate that matches the state's historic low rate last reached in June 2007, state officials said Wednesday. Leisure and hospitality added 1,500 jobs and professional and business services was down 1,600.

Albert Loh, chairman of the economics department at University of North Florida, said the First Coast unemployment rate dipped below 4 percent for the first time in a decade.

"The data suggests Kentucky's employment situation continues to improve as more residents are working", Kentucky Labor Market Information Director Kate Shirley Akers, Ph.D., said in the news release.

Five industries expanded their employment in April, while three cut jobs.

However, Bernick zeroed in on the jobs lost between March and April as a possible sign of a slowing economy.

Employment Security paid unemployment insurance benefits to 60,386 people in April. The line for several years marked the county with the worst unemployment in the state, and with one of the worst unemployment rates of any county in the nation.

The new data was released today by the state Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.
