The Vermont Department of Labor announced today that the seasonally-adjusted statewide unemployment rate for September was 2.9 percent.
The area and state unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted because the labor department provides only that figure for metropolitan statistical areas in Kansas. The largest over-the-month gain was for the government, which added 1,300 jobs to its sector, bringing the total job number to 18,200.
Rhode Island lost 3,700 jobs from the revised August employment level of 498,800, the agency said. The Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that MA has gained more than 62,000 jobs over the past year.
Interestingly, no sectors in Weld County had any over-the-year losses, and all industries either added jobs or remained the same as 2016.
However, the state's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for September was 3.8 percent.
