Valley's March unemployment rate down

March unemployment dips

The Mahoning Valley's nonseasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped three percentage points in March 2018 from March 2017.

Turlock's unemployment rate dropped to 5 percent in March, down from 5.3 percent in February.

The agency says the unemployment rate normally falls in March as workers are hired in construction, government and other sectors.

Unemployment estimates in surrounding counties saw decreases across the board in March compared to February and also compared to data from the same time a year ago.

Daviess County had an unemployment rate of 2.6 percent in March; four-tenths percent lower than March of previous year.

Watertown had the highest unemployment of any metro area in the state, at 8 percent.

"The growth in private sector jobs has been accelerating and the number of initial claims for unemployment insurance in the region has declined by almost 14 percent", Patel added.

While March job growth was a little slower than it had been the first two months of the year, Turek said job growth through the first quarter taken as a whole was ahead of last year's pace. The highest county jobless rate was recorded by Hamilton County, at 12.5 percent.

Every sector in Stanislaus County either posted job gains or remained steady in the month of March, according to the EDD data. The county ranks 18th in the state for unemployment rates.

Farming and manufacturing added approximately 400 jobs in March, though both sectors are behind in jobs when compared to a year ago, according to the EDD.

Gains were partially offset by losses in leisure and hospitality (-300); and financial activities (-200).

The overall state rate in March was 3.2 percent (unchanged), which was below a national rate of 4.1 percent.

"We are not getting enough job growth on Long Island to attract more people into the Long Island labor force", he said. Oyster Bay Town and the Village of Rockville Centre had the lowest - 3.8 percent.

The state, in March 2017, had more than 3.1 million employed with 122,032 unemployed, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In LaPorte, the rate fell by more than half a point, to 4.3 percent from 5.0 percent in February (4.9 percent in March 2017).

Persons employed part-time for economic reasons are those "who want and are available for full-time work but have had to settle for a part-time schedule".
