The rate rose as the labor force grew and the number of new layoffs increased.

Area employers had 16,800 more employees on their payrolls in January 2017 than a month earlier and 25,900 more than in January 2016, the metropolitan area report said.

The Metro area with the highest unemployment rate is Rocky Mount, and Asheville had the lowest rate at 4.6 percent. In January, 2,692 new job openings in the Northwest Georgia region were posted on Employ Georgia.

Decreases in new claims are typically an indication of an improving labor market as fewer individuals are losing jobs.

Local area unemployment data are not seasonally-adjusted.
