Charleston County enjoys the lowest unemployment rate in the Palmetto State

"The Department of Labor strives to have full employment throughout every industry in the state, and we're ready and able to assist Marylanders in their search for work", said Secretary Schulz. The national unemployment rate remained at 4.1 percent for the month of January 2018. The Illinois unemployment rate is down 0.4 percentage points from a year ago, when it was 5.2 percent. IL nonfarm payrolls were up 0.8 percent over-the-year in sharp contrast to the nation's 1.5 percent over-the-year gain in January. That's lower than the national rate of 4.1 percent. Indiana's total labor force is 3.3 million. In December, 50,413 people were unemployed.

Private sector employment has grown by more than 24,400 over the year, and has increased by 3,000 over the previous month, primarily due to gains in the Construction (2,400) and the Leisure and Hospitality (1,700) sectors.

Trade, transportation and utilities declined by 2,600, with retail trade suffering a 2,300 hit, due in part to recent layoffs and closures in the sector.

Unemployment figures are reported to the federal-level Bureau of Labor Statistics and also the Census Bureau, Parker said, citing a report from Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce project manager Dr. Steve Turkoski. That's when it released the jobs data from February and reported the legal sector lost 200 jobs that month - this on top of 1,200 jobs that were lost in the industry in January.
