Unemployment down slightly again in ME in January

Unemployment down slightly again in ME in January

The unemployment rate of 3 percent is up slightly from 2.8 percent a year ago.

According to the household survey, the state's year-over-year labor force growth comes mostly from individuals being successful in gaining employment. In January 2018, IL nonfarm payrolls were at a new high; 0.4 percent above the prior peak.

Seasonally adjusted job estimates indicate total Kansas nonfarm jobs increased by 200 from December.

The state's nonfarm employment increased by 9,200 overall with job gains led by durable goods manufacturing, up 2,100 and wholesale trade, up 3,200.

Meanwhile, professional and business services ticked upward by 6,200 jobs, and education and health services rose by 4,600. Mining and logging remained unchanged. IL nonfarm payrolls were up 0.8 percent over-the-year in sharp contrast to the nation's 1.5 percent over-the-year gain in January.

In a year-over-year comparison (January 2017 to January 2018), nonfarm payroll employment in California increased by 400,100 jobs (a 2.4 percent increase).

Construction was up 4,100 jobs over the year and the leisure industry added 1,300 jobs. "The training, education, and supportive services provided to our workforce strengthens the talent pipeline and gives job creators the tools they need to prosper".

The January job gains were balanced with a reduction in the categories of real estate, retail trade, government, and transportation, warehousing, and utilities.

In the month of January, none of California's eleven industry sectors lost jobs. That's the case with Vermont's latest unemployment report. The U6 index rate for North Carolina was 8.2 percent in January, compared with 8.2 percent nationally on February 28.

In the last five years, Albania has maintained a downward trend of unemployment rate.
