25 March, 2017, 00:10 | Author: Jacqueline Ellis

The New York State Department of Labor says the state's unemployment rate fell to 4.4 percent in February.

The January unemployment rate in Chautauqua County has spiked from the year before, according to the New York State Department of Labor.

In the city of Jamestown, preliminary data shows an unemployment rate of 7.7 percent for January.

The unemployment rate in ME fell in February to 3.2 percent, which was the lowest rate since December 2000.

Private sector employment declined in February, with the biggest decline coming from the leisure and hospitality industry, which had 3,200 fewer jobs. In February 2016, the unemployment rate was also 5.5 percent. The increase is more than twice the average January-to-February growth for the previous three years, which is 5,900, labor officials said.

While this undoubtedly is good news, it's important to note that job seekers in many parts of the state continue to have a hard time finding work.

Most of the 1,500 jobs lost in February occurred in the private sector, while jobs in government remained relatively unchanged, declining by about 100, according to Thursday's report.

Cullman County tied for third with Autauga County for the state's lowest unemployment rates. Nationally, total nonfarm employment grew 1.6 percent in February compared to a year ago.

The Economic Analysis and Labor Force Estimates are prepared by the Employment Security division's labor market information specialists. Since Governor McAuliffe entered office, Virginia has added 191,600 net new jobs. Trade and transportation saw the largest decline.
