Pa. unemployment rate ticks down”

Both rates have been falling this year.

According to the state Employment Development Department's monthly statistical analysis, the county again led the region with an unemployment rate of 3.8 percent - a decrease from 4.5 percent in August.

Ohio's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 5.3 percent in September, down from 5.4 percent in August. Ohio's non-agricultural wage and salary employment increased 10,500 over the month, from a revised 5,546,500 in August to 5,557,000 in September 2017.

The state Employment Department calculates the unemployment rate based on the number of people in Lane County drawing unemployment benefits - which requires them to seek work - and a survey of households by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. The number of unemployed has increased by 21,000 in the past 12 months from 284,000.

The Mahoning Valley's nonseasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.2 percent during September, up 1 percent from last September. In May, Linn County's unemployment dipped to 4.1 percent, the lowest mark since OR began tracking county-by-county data in 1990.

Regionally, registered nursing is the profession with the highest demand from employers, according to the Employment Development Department.

Over the past year, Linn County has added 1,020 jobs for a 2.3 percent increase, while Benton County added 550 jobs for a 1.3 percent increase. Employment in mining and logging did not change from August.

He added that it took Linn County longer than many areas to start adding jobs coming out of the recession, but Albany, Lebanon, Sweet Home and other communities have been making up for lost time.

Job growth was seen in the manufacturing of durable goods, trade and transportation, professional business services and education and health services. Construction added 9,100 jobs.
