AR Unemployment Holds Steady at 3.7 Percent

Vermont's unemployment rate continues to remain low while employers across the state report they can't find enough workers to fill open jobs. "We look forward to seeing the many more opportunities that will be created throughout the year as more job creators choose to grow in Florida".

Hawaii had the lowest unemployment rate among the states in January, coming in at 2.1 percent. Both have stayed in place since then.

For the month, the state reported a seasonally adjusted rate of 3.7 percent, down 0.1 percent from December 2017.

More people are working in Illinois according to new data released by the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES).

The private-sector net job gains from December to January were led by 3,000 in professional and business services, 2,100 in leisure and hospitality services, 1,800 in construction, 1,100 in manufacturing and 800 in education and health services.

Counties with the highest unemployment rates in the state were Citrus at 6 percent, up from 5.4 percent in December. It's the third lowest January unemployment rate since 1990. Indiana's total labor force is 3.3 million. Local, state and federal government jobs also lost jobs over the past year.

The only category with a year-over-year decline was "other services" at 1,700 jobs.

Accommodations and food services have also shown strong signs of growth with 3,600 jobs added since previous year.

Nationally, unemployment has been below 4 percent during just five months, all in 2000.
