AR Unemployment Rate Declines to 3.8 Percent

The unemployment rate in Nebraska was 3.3 percent in January, unchanged from December, according to preliminary data issued Monday by the State Department of Labor. The headline unemployment rate edged down one-tenth of a percent to 4.7 percent, while the more expansive U-6 unemployment rate was 9.2 percent, down two-tenths of a percent.

In January 2017 the unemployment rate in Arkansas dropped to 3.8 percent, down a tenth of a percent from December 2016 (3.9 percent).

One private industry showing the most growth was services, which includes fix and maintenance; personal and laundry services; and religious, grantmaking, civic and professional organizations.

The not seasonally adjusted statewide unemployment rate estimate of 4.0 percent for January was down from 4.6 percent one year ago.

The report shows that Arkansas' civilian labor force declined 1,275, a result of 2,098 fewer unemployed and 823 additional employed Arkansans.

"I'll take a 2.9 percent growth rate any day", said Tom Binnings, a senior partner with Summit Economics LLC, a local economic research and consulting firm. Nearly 10,000 people entered the state labor force last month but only 6,500 of them found work, making the unemployment rate go up, said Labor Commissioner Fitzgerald Washington. "After revising data from previous years, the new series reflects a small but steady decrease in unemployment each month since March 2011". Ten major industry sectors posted job losses, the majority of which experienced typical seasonal fluctuations.
