Iowa's unemployment rate at lowest level since 2001

Construction added 9,300 jobs, or 3.9 percent of its workforce, and leisure and hospitality added 15,300 positions, for 2.8 percent growth. But in good times Connecticut's unemployment tends to be a percentage point lower than the nation's. The 2.6 percent growth rate continues to outpace the national growth rate of 1.6 percent. Sometimes drops in unemployment result from people dropping out of the labor force, but that doesn't appear to have been the case last month.

The New Haven labor market led all regional markets with 1,700 new jobs, according to the report.

Poland's unemployment rate decreased unexpectedly in February, though marginally, figures from the Central Statistical Office showed Thursday.

"We will keep an eye on it, but it's nothing to get too anxious about", Slenker said.

For one thing, it does not take into account people who have become so frustrated in looking for work that they have given up the search. IL now sits at an all-time high for total jobs count as a result of gaining 25,600 jobs in February and having an upward revision in its January jobs data. Total private jobs fell from 40,300 in January 2016 to 39,700 this year.

"After 17 years, IL jobs have finally regained their September 2000 peak", Mays said. Indiana's total labor force stands at over 3.32 million and the state's 64.4 percent labor force participation rate remains above the national rate of 63.0 percent. In January, 44,235 new job openings in Atlanta were posted on Employ Georgia. However, the number is lower than the 8.1 percent unemployment rate seen in January 2015.

The Connecticut unemployment rate rose from 4.5 percent in January to 4.7 percent in February as the state posted a net loss of 1,600 jobs, almost all in the private sector, the state Department of Labor reported Thursday.

Other metro counties' unemployment rates for January were Clayton at 7 percent; Coweta at 4.9 percent; DeKalb at 5.6 percent; Douglas at 5.7 percent; Fulton at 5.6 percent and Henry at 5.7 percent.
