Tennessee preliminary unemployment rate up in September

The state Department of Labor and Training said Thursday the jobless rate in September was unchanged from August.

The total number of working Iowans increased to 1.65 million in September, an increase of 8,200 from August and 9,600 higher than a year ago, according to Iowa Workforce Development. But the state's unemployment rate also declined to its lowest level since early 2001, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The Department of Employment and Workforce said Friday that South Carolina's unemployment was 4.9 percent in September.

Over the year, non-farm employment increased 71,300 jobs. At 3.1 percent, down from 3.2 percent in August, San Mateo County had the lowest. That left 2,476 people on the unemployment rolls in September, down from 2,559 at this time a year ago.

Employers pared 900 jobs last month, halting three consecutive months of growth. Sectors that lost jobs included trade, transporation, and utilities, construction, and information. Gadsden County had 6.1 percent unemployment rate. This is one of those unemployment report where the uptick in the unemployment rate is nearly meaningless, compared to other numbers, at least as far as Flagler County's economy is concerned.
