Ellis County unemployment rate at 2.6 percent in April

Washington unemployment rate drops to 4.6 percent

Statewide DEW said South Carolina's jobless rate was 4.3 percent in April, a 0.1 percentage-point drop from March. On Friday, May 19, 2017, the Labor Department reports on state unemployment rates for April.

Colorado had the lowest unemployment rate in April, at 2.3 percent, followed by Hawaii and North Dakota, at 2.7 percent each.

The latest numbers released by the state Employment Security Department show that the April's rate was down slightly from 4.7 percent in March. On Friday, the U.S. Department of Labor said Colorado and OR reported the lowest unemployment rates since 1976. "This continues to indicate that workers are entering or rejoining the labor force and many are finding work".

For the past year, and with just a couple of exceptions, the county's unemployment rate has managed to remain flat or to fall, and to do so despite a sharp increase in the local labor force, which has grown by about 1,000, or 2 percent, since last May. Grand Island's preliminary rate rose two-tenths of a point to hit 3.5 percent last month, compared with 3.3 percent in March.

The First Coast's unemployment rate for April is down from a year ago when the jobless figure was 4.4 percent. The increase in United States of America transportation sector hiring follows revised gains of 6,600 jobs in March and 7,600 positions in February and a 10,200-job loss in January. The largest job growth sector, with 1,200 new jobs, was education and health services.

Employment in Kentucky's construction sector for April 2017 was 4,000 higher than in April 2016.

Miami-Dade and Broward counties continue to churn out jobs, while unemployment ticked down, following the trend of other Florida metro areas and the state as a whole. Employment was up by 14,832, while the number of unemployed increased by 2,450. "Manufacturing employment varies from month-to month". "But we have more work to do in helping to match the unemployed with the job openings across the state". The state also said the March job loss of 17,500 was revised to a narrower loss of 12,500 positions. Construction and mining and logging were both unchanged.

Since April of past year, construction has registered the largest expansion, adding 6,300 jobs, two-thirds of them specialty trade contractors.

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

"The reason I mention this is that past year (2016), [the Vermont Department of Labor] announced two preliminary rate increases - one in June and another in August".
