County's unemployment rate stays same in November
Queens County had the lowest unemployment rate in the state with 3.5 percent.
The local jobless rate is seven-tenths of a percent lower than previous year at this time.
Putnam County's 3 percent rate was tied with Holmes County for second-lowest, the state Job and Family Services Department said.
The state's highest November unemployment - 4.9 percent - was in east-central Indiana's Fayette County. With the exception of one month when it was equal (October 2014), Indiana's unemployment rate now has been below the US rate for more than four years.
Calhoun County had the highest unemployment rate in November at 9.5 percent, a jump of 2.6 percent from 7.2 percent in October.
Counties with an unemployment rate at or below four percent included Monroe (4.0%), Hampshire (3.7%), Morgan (3.6%), Berkeley (3.5%), Monongalia, Pendleton and Doddridge (3.4%), and Jefferson (3.0%).
Statewide, the not seasonally adjusted jobless rate was 5 percent, an increase of eight-tenths of 1 percent from 4.2 percent. According to statistics from that month, the civilian labor force was 30,700 and there were 29,600 people employed.
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. In Briscoe the labor force was 514, down from 526 in October; in Castro the labor force 3,184, down from 3,296; Floyd was down to 2,603 from 2,663; Lamb saw a decrease to 4,946 from 5,024 and Swisher went down to 2,648 from 2,677.
Idahos labor force participation rate rose slightly for the fourth consecutive month from 63.5 to 64 percent, with the average share for men (70 percent) and women (58 percent) remaining stable for the past 12 months. Trade, Transportation, and Utilities employment grew by 8,200 jobs, and Manufacturing industry jobs increased by 2,700 positions. Private sector job growth was much stronger (+4%) due to gains from professional and business services and leisure and hospitality.
Crawford: 4.2 percent, up from 4.0 percent.
After December's numbers are available, the county's unemployment rate for 2017 is likely to be less than 5 percent, which would be a 27-year record low, Rooney said.
