Wyoming Unemployment

Wyoming jobless rate down to 4.2 percent in December


The Associated Press - January 23, 2018

CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Wyoming's unemployment rate fell slightly to 4.2 percent in December from November's 4.3 percent.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services says the state's unemployment rate has decreased significantly from its year-ago level of 4.8 percent mainly from people leaving the workforce.

The state's labor force fell by nearly 8,600 people from December 2016 to December 2017, suggesting that individuals may have moved to other states or dropped out of the labor force.

Niobrara County had the state's lowest jobless rate in December at 2.2 percent, followed by Goshen and Albany counties at 2.6 percent and Crook at 3.1 percent.

The highest unemployment rates were 5.2 percent in Fremont County, 5.0 percent in Natrona, 4.6 in Park and 4.1 in Campbell and Uinta counties.
