Unemployment Rises in Wyoming

Written by on October 24, 2018

Wyoming’s unemployment rate increased to 4.1 percent in September.
The state Department of Workforce Services reported Tuesday that the state’s seasonally adjusted jobless rate rose from 3.9 percent recorded in August. The September number is slightly higher than the current U.S. unemployment rate of 3.7 percent.
From August to September, most county unemployment rates changed very little. Jobless rates increased in Sublette, Teton and Weston counties while they fell in Goshen and Albany counties. Compared to last year at this time, Big Horn County’s unemployment rate increased from 3.5 to 4 percent.
The highest unemployment rates last month were reported in Natrona and Fremont counties at 4.5 percent. The lowest rates occurred in Teton County at 2.2 percent.
