  • Slight rise in Idaho unemployment for October

In the Lincoln metro area, which includes Lancaster and Seward counties, the unemployment rate of 2.1 percent was down from 2.3 percent in September and 2.8 percent from October 2016.

And it's three-tenths of a percent better than that rate of 4.1 percent, which was the lowest in nearly 17 years.

Alabama's unemployment rate has dropped to a record low 3.6 percent.

Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Rosalin Acosta says the lower unemployment rate and jobs growth indicate the "ongoing strength of the economy in MA".


She says apprenticeships have helped millions of people develop skills needed for good jobs. The last time the rate was 4.7 percent was in November 2007.

The monthly gain of 1,4000 non-farm payroll jobs was lower than the state's 12-month average gain of 3,817 jobs, according to CDLE data. That's down from 2.7 percent in September and 3.2 percent a year ago. The Omaha metro area's rate of 2.4 percent also was the lowest in almost 20 years.

Pennsylvania's nonfarm jobs count was down 4,300 from September's record high level to 5,973,800 in October. The largest supersector movement in October was an increase of 6,000 professional & business services jobs, while the largest drop was a 4,900 decline in trade, transportation & utilities. The bulk of the increase in leisure and hospitality was attributed to employment increases in food services and drinking places.
