  • Arkansas Unemployment Rate Falls to a Record 3.8 Percent

Still, January's total number of unemployed in Flagler is closer to what it was in January 2015 (2,963), when the unemployment rate was 6.9 percent, the difference being that the local workforce has since grown by 2,650, and that the number of people holding jobs has also grown, from 39,822 two years ago to 42,711, an increase of almost 3,000, or 7 percent. This is down just one tenth of a percent from January 2016 at 4.9 percent.

New Jersey added almost 61,000 jobs last year, the largest year of private-sector growth since 2000, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The U.S. unemployment rate in January was 4.8 percent, little changed from December's 4.7 percent and December 2015's 4.9 percent. The number of Coloradans participating in the labor force increased 47,500, total employment increased 59,600 and the number of unemployed decreased 12,200.

Limestone County's unemployment rate was 6 percent in January, up from 5.2 percent in December and 5.5 percent in January 2016.

While this time of year typically sees the lowest unemployment because of the area's seasonal economy, Wall said he wouldn't be shocked to see the rate rise again when the state releases February jobs data March 24.

Seven major industry sectors reported employment gains, while four sectors declined. That, along with New Jersey's job growth past year, should put an end to reporting that the state has lagged in the economic recovery, Christie said. Jobs in professional and business services increased 2,700.

Here are preliminary area labor market unemployment rates for January, followed by the preliminary December rates. Employment in other services rose 1,900.

Glades' rate: 6.9 percent in January, 6.2 percent in December and 6 percent a year ago. Both local and state government reported losses.
