Governor Terry McAuliffe today announced that Virginia's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was down 0.1 percentage point in February to 3.9%, the lowest rate since June 2008.

Merced County had a February unemployment rate of 12.4 percent, down from 12.6 percent in January.

The report showed the first two months of this year are reversing a workforce trend seen through 2016, when Pennsylvania's unemployment rate increased by a almost a full percentage point.

Tenbrink says that overall, total nonfarm employment saw little movement since February 2016. The unemployment rate in the city of Mobile fell to 7.3 percent in February.

A breakdown provided by the Labor Dept. showed the Education and Health Services sector added 2,300 jobs while the Constuction sector expanded by 1,300 jobs. Counties with the highest unemployment rates are: Wilcox County at 14.9 percent, Clarke County at 11.2 percent, and Lowndes County at 10.7 percent. The number of unemployed fell to 19,350 from 19,750.

The Current Population (CPS), or the household survey, is conducted by the Census Bureau and identifies members of the work force and measures how many people are working or looking for work.


Iowa Workforce Development considers a 3 percent unemployment rate to be full employment for the state, a department spokesman said. Manufacturing increased 2,100, with hiring in nondurable goods (+3,500) more than offsetting the losses in durable goods (-1,400).

Cullman County tied for third with Autauga County for the state's lowest unemployment rates.

Black men 20 years old and older continue to suffer the highest unemployment rate.

California's labor market has added jobs at a faster pace than the nation every year since 2012, he said. Post-holiday retail job cutbacks continued last month, with 3,400 positions lost, the agency reported.

The highest growth sectors for IN in February were manufacturing and trade, transportation and utilities, though gains were offset by losses IN the leisure and hospitality sector. The Hispanic jobless rate was 5.6 percent, up slightly from 5.5 percent a year earlier.
