  • Washington unemployment rate drops to 4.6 percent

The state Department of Workforce Development reported that the unemployment rate in April was 3.2 percent.

"The establishment survey indicates employment increased in April, however the number of jobs added in April was lower than in the past few months", Akers said. Colorado's rate, at 2.3 percent, was the nation's lowest.

The jobless rate in Orange County and Seminole County dropped to 3.5 percent, also a 10-year low, and lower than the March rate of 3.8 percent.

In April 2017, nine states had month-to-month increases in nonfarm payroll jobs and one state had a decrease. Since April 2016, that rate has increased by 1.5 percent, according to a release from the state.

Shelby County in metro Birmingham has the state's lowest unemployment rate at 3.3 percent. The data agency attributed the fall in the unemployment rate to 45,500 people leaving the labor force, or the biggest such decline in nearly two decades.

Leisure and hospital jobs, a mainstay of the local economy, had the same amount of jobs year-over-year: 12,800.

MolokaŹ»i continued to have the state's highest unemployment rate of 5.6%-up from the 5.4% rate in March, down from the 5.7% rate recorded at the same time past year.

The nationally known economist explained that job growth in and around Silicon Valley has been slowing of late, and that region has helped boost statewide numbers for more than a year.

The industries with the most job growth in the Jacksonville area over the year were trade, transportation and utilities, with 4,700 jobs; and education and health services, with 4,600 jobs.

Construction and mining posted the largest jobs gain, 2,800, to 62,500, up 4.7 percent. Employers added 79,000 jobs in March, partly because of a snowstorm that weighed on economic activity, revised figures released by the government Friday showed.

Four of California's 11 industry sectors added a total of 21,600 jobs in April.

Civilian labor force statistics include nonmilitary workers and unemployed Kentuckians who are actively seeking work.

Nonfarm data is provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Current Employment Statistics program.
