Colorado unemployment rate inches up; fewer jobs added

Maine unemployment dips to 3.5% in October

There were 19,600 more unemployed residents over the year compared to October 2016.

That shows an unemployment rate of 3.6% in October of 2017, down from 4.3% in October 2016. Chase County has the lowest rate at 2 percent while Coffey County has the highest at 4.2 percent.

The governor's office says the rate announced Friday is down from the September rate of 3.8 percent, and it's the lowest ever recorded in Alabama.

She says apprenticeships have helped millions of people develop skills needed for good jobs.

However, looking at the year overall, employment was up by 1,000 and unemployment dropped by 58,000.

"The low unemployment rate and job gains are indicators of the ongoing strength of the economy in MA". The rate stood at 4.2 percent in August.

Unemployment also remains low in other states throughout the New England region, ranging from a low of 2.7 percent in New Hampshire to a high of 4.5 in CT.

Iowa's unemployment rate has dropped to its lowest level in almost 17 years. Government employment declined by 500 jobs, the DLIR said.

Seasonally adjusted job estimates indicate total Kansas nonfarm jobs decreased by 1,700 from September.

The largest increase in the last 12 months was 24,500 added jobs in professional and business services.

On the Kansas side of the Kansas City metropolitan area, unemployment fell two-tenths of a point, to 3.1 percent.
