Wisconsin unemployment rate ticks up to 3.4 percent

Colorado employers added 4,400 non-farm jobs to their payrolls in August

In Tulare County, the August unemployment rate was 10.6 percent, down from 10.7 percent in July but above 10.4 percent a year ago.

August's one tenth-of-a-percent decline was the sixth consecutive monthly decrease in the unemployment rate and is a result of the first substantial increase to Idaho's labor force since February. USA employers added 156,000 jobs overall last month, and the unemployment rate ticked up to 4.4 percent, still near a 16-year low.

Nationally, unemployment was 4.4 percent in August - up one tenth of a percent from July - while the country's labor force and the participation rate held steady at 62.9 percent.

On a month-over basis, nonfarm employment dropped by 300 jobs while farm employment increased by 1,700 jobs.

Economist Emilie Doerksen said nonfarm employment grew by 800 jobs last month and the service-providing sector added almost 2,000 jobs.

In the past year, officials said, Kansas has lost 9,000 seasonally adjusted nonfarm jobs.

The figures reflect the steady job gains nationwide that have fueled the eight-year long economic recovery from the Great Recession. Maryland ranked third in the nation in employment increase by percentage, with a 0.5.

Jobs in educational and health services rose by 6,600, in health care and social assistance and educational services. Jobs in leisure and hospitality rose 4,600, largely in food services (+3,000).
