Wyoming’s Unemployment Rate in June Unchanged From May

K2 Radio

Wyoming’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was unchanged in June at 4.6%. David Bullard, senior economist with the research & Planning section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, says the state‚Äôs seasonally adjusted rate was significantly lower than both its June 2012 level of 5.5% and well below the current U.S. unemployment rate of 7.6%. Seasonally adjusted employment of Wyoming residents grew modestly, rising by 359 individuals (0.1%) from May to June.

Bullard says most county unemployment rates increased slightly from May to June. Unemployment sometimes rises in June as large numbers of young people leave school and join the labor force. Sublette County posted the lowest unemployment rate in June at 3.3%. The highest unemployment rate in June was found in Fremont county at 5.8%.

Bullard says from June 2012 to June 2013, unemployment rates fell in every county. The largest decreases occurred in Lincoln county down from 7.2% to 5.3%, Laramie county down from 6.3% to 4.9%, and Sheridan county down from 6.2% to 4.9%.
