Nebraska Jobless Rate

Nebraska Jobless Rate

Nebraska’s 2.8% March jobless rate down over past year


The Associated Press - April 21, 2019

OMAHA, Neb. — Nebraska’s unemployment rate remained unchanged last month at 2.8%, and it’s unclear whether any jobs lost to spring floodwaters will markedly change that figure soon.

The preliminary March rate was a tenth of a point under the year-ago figure of 2.9%, the Nebraska Labor Department said in a news release Friday. It also was well below March’s national figure of 3.8%, which is down two-tenths of a point from 4% a year ago. It’s the eighth straight month the Nebraska figure’s been 2.8%.

Department spokeswoman Grace Johnson said she couldn’t comment on whether a rise was expected in the wake of the “bomb cyclone” last month. Early estimates indicate the blizzard in western and central Nebraska and flooding in eastern Nebraska caused nearly $1.4 billion in damage to property, farm operations and infrastructure.
