The number of people counted as unemployed fell by almost 4,800 in August compared with a year ago.

California's jobless rate rose to 5.1 percent in August, the first time in six months that statewide unemployment surpassed the 5 percent threshold.

Seasonally adjusted job estimates indicate total Kansas nonfarm jobs increased by 800 from July.


Unemployment in the state's 17 labor markets range from a low of 2.5 percent in White River Junction and Burlington to 4.8 percent in Derby.

The labor department says the unemployment rate in ME has been 4 percent or less for 23 months.

Compared to August 2016, nonfarm payroll jobs in Arkansas are up by 22,500. Of the 14,200 jobs added last month, 9,700 were in the private sector. Boise (up 0.8 percent), Coeur d'Alene and Pocatello (0.5 percent) MSAs together saw nonfarm job increases of 3,000. Seven major industry sectors added jobs, with four adding 3,300 or more jobs each. Over the year, the state's nonfarm payroll jobs were up 2.2 percent with a net gain of 15,200 jobs. Gains in financial activities and educational and health services were offset by losses in professional and business services and leisure and hospitality.
