Wyoming’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell from 4.0% in March to 3.7% in April according to the  Research & Planning section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.

Senior Economist David Bullard says Wyoming’s unemployment rate was significantly lower than its year-ago level of 4.7% and the current U.S. unemployment rate of 6.3%. Seasonally adjusted employment of Wyoming residents increased, rising by 1,657 individuals (0.6%) from March to April.

Bullard adds that most county unemployment rates followed their normal seasonal pattern and decreased slightly from March to April.

Teton County posted the highest unemployment rate in April (7.0%). It was followed by Lincoln (5.1%), Johnson (4.6%), and Fremont (4.5%) counties. The lowest unemployment rates were found in Converse (2.4%), Campbell (2.6%), Sublette (2.8%), and Albany (2.8%) counties.

Bullard says from April 2013 to April 2014, unemployment rates declined in every county, suggesting improvement in economic conditions around the state.
