Iowa's unemployment rate steady at 2.9%

"Illinois job growth over the past year has been spurred by a resurgence in manufacturing", Illinois Department of Employment Security Director Jeff Mays said.

Arkansas' January unemployment rate held steady at 3.7 percent. The Illinois unemployment rate is down 0.4 percentage points from a year ago, when it was 5.2 percent.

North Carolina's unemployment rate in January didn't move from the 4.5 percent mark where it's been for three previous months.

For example, the jobless rate was listed as having dropped to a 16-year low of 4.1 percent from July through October.

Nationally, unemployment has been below 4 percent during just five months, all in 2000. The manufacturing sector added the most jobs in the state: 3,100.

Jonathan Stewart released by Panthers
Stewart was the team's leading rusher last season, and he racked up nearly 250 yards more than McCaffrey did in his rookie season. While Jonathan Stewart put in the work, he has not been a 1000 yard Running Back since his second season with Carolina in 2009.

Self-employed people, like proprietors or independent contractors, are not accounted for in unemployment figures, however.

Labor officials say New Mexico recorded aggregate gains in the private sector that resulted in 8,000 jobs, or 1.3 percent growth. The industry sectors with the largest over-the-year declines include: Information Services (-3,400); Trade, Transportation and Utilities (-3,300); and Other Services (-400).

"We're healing economically, but it's not revealed in the labor force numbers", Parker said. Whereas, in quarterly terms, total employment increased with 0.9 % compared to the third quarter of 2017. It takes only an hour's work to register a person as employed for the period covered by the unemployment report, which does not distinguish between part-timers and full-timers, or part-timers who could not find full time work, and those who work part-time by choice.

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.
