DE jobless rate rises for second straight month

Thanks to that decline, the unemployment rate fell to 2.8 percent for the month, which was down from 3.2 percent a year ago.

Preliminary estimates reported by the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show a seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 3.9 percent in August.

"From day one, a top priority of our administration has been growing our private sector and creating more jobs and we have made incredible progress", Gov. Larry Hogan said in a statement. The national unemployment rate stood at 4.4 percent.

August's one tenth-of-a-percent decline was the sixth consecutive monthly decrease in the unemployment rate and is a result of the first substantial increase to Idaho's labor force since February.

Emilie Doerksen, an economist with the state's labor department, said total nonfarm employment expanded by 800 jobs last month.

Compared to August 2016, nonfarm payroll jobs in Arkansas are up by 22,500. That is a slight increase from July where it was at 3.7%.

Year over year, farms added 700 jobs while nonfarm industries added 1,300 jobs.

Manufacturing added 3,300 jobs. The categories with the biggest job gains were leisure and hospitality and professional and business services.

Other services added 1,800 jobs.
