September unemployment rate falls in Wichita area, state

The unemployment rate was 2.5 percent in September

The preliminary nonfarm payroll jobs estimate for ME was up 3,400 jobs from a year earlier to 621,200 jobs in September, the department said.

That means 12,344 people out of an area workforce of 310,889 were without a job. The mining and logging sector, which houses the oil and gas industry, added 100 jobs, marking a 1,500 over-the-year change in Weld.

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.

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

The United States unemployment rate is 4.2 percent, which experienced a two-tenths of one percentage point decrease from the revised August estimate. It was the third straight month the rate has increased for the state after it plummeted in the first half of the year. It remains below the national unemployment rate of 4.2 percent.

ME labor officials say the current 24-month stretch in which unemployment has been 4 percent or less is the second-longest such period in more than four decades.
