  • RI, Mass. unemployment rates fall slightly

According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, the state jobless rate increased from 3.5 percent in August, but remains below the national rate of 4.2 percent.

Overall in September, Weld added 900 total nonfarm jobs, which is an over-the-year employment change of 3,600, bringing total nonfarm jobs to 103,600. The Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that MA has gained more than 62,000 jobs over the past year. The farming industry lost 800 jobs last month, however.

The biggest gains were made in Trade, Transportation and Utilities, and Leisure and Hospitality.

The report said South Carolina's workforce increased by over 5,200 people in September with a growth of more than 26,500 jobs from September 2016.

Nebraska's unemployment rate of 2.8 percent in September was the same as in August, but it was down considerably from September 2016, when the rate was 3.3 percent.

That national rate for the same period was 9.2 percent and Wisconsin ranks in the middle-of-the-pack in the 12-state Midwest region.

The September unemployment rates for Vermont's 17 labor market areas ranged from 2.3 percent in White River Junction to 4.3 percent in Bennington and Derby (note: local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally-adjusted).
