Indiana Unemployment Rate Makes Biggest One-Month Jump Since 2009”

Unemployment in Colorado held steady at a near-record low of 2.4 percent in August, the state said Friday, even as the number of jobless rose slightly.

The number of people counted as unemployed fell by almost 4,800 in August compared with a year ago.

The August rate was four-tenths of a point under the year-ago rate of 3.2 percent, the report said, and the rate also remained well below the USA figure, which rose to 4.4 percent.

Mendocino County ranked No. 16 and remained unchanged at 4.8 percent.

The Lincoln-area unemployment rate dropped in August, as did the state rate.

The Massachusetts unemployment rate presently stands two-tenths of a percent below the national average.

In August, leisure and hospitality employers added 3,700 jobs with education and health services hiring 2,200 employees. This accounts for a preliminary one-month decrease of 8,800 total non-farm and 5,200 private sector jobs from July to August 2017.

Employment in professional and business services increased by 5,100. The largest over the month declines were in leisure and hospitality, and information.

Government reported the largest decline, down 1,500 jobs.

"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.
