Oil workers drill for oil on a rig near College Station in May. On Friday the Texas Workforce Commission reported energy drilling jobs had the most job growth adding 6,000 jobs during May

The unemployment rate remains at 3.1 percent in May, compared to a nationwide unemployment rate of 4.3 percent.

EDD said the state has added more than 2.5 million jobs since economic expansion began in February 2010.

Since May 2016, employment grew by 51,642, the labor force increased by 31,655 people, and the level of unemployed decreased 19,987.

The two lowest tied-rates of unadjusted unemployment were in the cities and boroughs of Juneau and Sitka, at 4.1 percent.

New Mexico's unemployment rate is down slightly. According to this survey, four of Kentucky's 11 major nonfarm North American Industry Classification System job sectors registered gains in employment, while seven declined from the previous month.

Jobs in government decreased by 1,400, with declines in both local and state government, although more jobs were lost in local government.

"We're seeing a falling-off in job creation over the last few months that's fairly broad based", Bauer said. Overall monthly job additions totaled 29,400.

In Orange County, where seasonally adjusted numbers were not available, the unemployment rate was 3.2 percent, down from 3.3 percent in April.

The Dallas Fed now projects that the state will add 309,200 jobs by year's end. Iowa has one of the lowest jobless rates in the country.

Job categories with the most growth over the past year were business and professional services, up 3,217; trade, transportation and utilities, up 2,351; and financial services, up 2,251. It was 3.8 percent a year ago.

Since April, there was a 0.1 percent increase in unemployment, statewide.
