County's unemployment rate stays same in November

Posted December 29, 2017

Eight of the nine regional county's employment rates have declined since last month, according to figures released Wednesday by Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

Lewis County's rate rose from a record low of 5.5 percent in October to 5.9 percent in November.

The following is a list of Henderson County's neighbors, the November unemployment rate followed by the October rate. With the exception of one month when it was equal (October 2014), Indiana's unemployment rate now has been below the USA rate for more than four years. The county had not posted a rate of over-the-year job growth below 3 percent in over 5 years. The rate is down from previous year when it was 6.1 percent, not a statistically significant decline. Only Hamilton County had a higher rate at 9.9 percent.

Tennessee's statewide unemployment rate in November was 3.1 percent - two percentage points lower than it was in November 2016 and one percentage point lower than the national rate. Also, the number of people employed has increased by 300, bringing the labor force to 48,200.

The rate dropped for three straight months before increasing during the summer.

Overall, government employment grew by 2,100 over the year from a gain in local government (up 2,200, including 2,100 in education alone) and a loss of 100 federal government jobs.

Construction employment fell by 90 jobs and leisure and hospitality shed 480 jobs in November.

Dubois: 2.4 percent, down from 2.5 percent.

The number of those on the job actually increased by 201 from October, but that was offset by the increase in the number unemployed, which rose from 1,223 to 1,277.

Cheryl A. Mayforth, director of the Jefferson County Department of Employment & Training at the WorkPlace, said the unemployment rate typically rises in November because seasonal businesses close up for the winter, but a lack of holiday hiring from retailers and other private services, the second largest employment category in the county, this year pushed the rate even higher.

Warrick: 3.0 percent, up from 2.9 percent. The number of claimants dropped 19 percent from a weekly average of 5,400 a year ago to 4,400.
