Maryland adds 2400 jobs in September as unemployment falls”

The Manhattan area saw a similar boost in employment, adding an estimated 3,665 jobs over the month, lowering its unemployment rate to 2.7 percent.

The share of unemployed in the state is at its lowest point since the early months of the Great Recession. The largest over-the-month gain was for the government, which added 1,300 jobs to its sector, bringing the total job number to 18,200.

Interestingly, no sectors in Weld County had any over-the-year losses, and all industries either added jobs or remained the same as 2016. That unemployment rate is down seven-tenths of a percentage point from 3.2 percent.

The number of jobless people in the Wichita area fell in September, according to a report Friday from the Kansas Department of Labor.

The RI labor force totaled 555,000 in September 2017, down 1,300 from August 2017 and up 2,800 from September 2016.

The state lost jobs in construction, manufacturing, and trade, transportation and utilities sectors.

The Massachusetts unemployment rate in August was 4.2 percent. Not only was it the area's lowest unemployment rate in almost two years, it tied November 2015, November 2014 and December 2007 for the lowest rate since December 2000. Jobs in educational and health services rose to 3,100. Federal government increased by 600 jobs, while state and local government employment decreased by 200 jobs and 1,300 jobs respectively. The level of unemployed people has gone down by almost 13,000.

A survey of households found that Pennsylvania's civilian labor force shrank for the fourth straight month, this time by 15,000, after hitting a record high in May. The seasonally adjusted rate factors influences such as weather, holidays and the opening and closing of schools.
