    1. 1. State Employment Trends February 2012 National Association of REALTORS® Research Division Compilation of Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics
    2. 2. Data Highlights – Unemployment Rate• The US unemployment rate was 8.3 percent in January 2012, down from 8.5 percent in December 2011 and 9.1 percent at the beginning of 2011.• The overwhelming majority of states saw the same improvements. Forty-five states and DC saw the unemployment rate improve in January; an additional 4 states saw no increase. From one month ago, Mississippi and Missouri had the biggest improvements each seeing more than a 0.5 percent drop in the unemployment rate.• Since December one year ago, 48 states and DC states have had an improvement in the unemployment rate. Michigan—now at 9.0 percent from 10.9 percent—had the largest improvement in this period followed by Utah, Alabama, and Missouri, each with improvements of at least 1.5 percent.• In January, North Dakota, Nebraska, and South Dakota had the lowest unemployment rates—all under 5 percent. At the same time, 4 states had double-digit unemployment rates.
    3. 3. More Highlights—Payroll Jobs and Outlook• 44 states and the District of Columbia had positive job growth in the last year, and 37 states had positive job growth in January, a time when net growth was about 284,000 jobs for the nation. The average change among states was 0.3 percent.• The greatest job growth in January was in New Hampshire, while the District of Columbia had the largest job decline (both as a share of previous payrolls).• In January, the unemployment rate declined in spite of a growing labor force showing that the jobs created were enough to absorb new and re-entrants to the labor force. Going forward, increasing labor force participation may slow the easing of the unemployment rate or even push it up slightly despite the creation of new jobs.• The following slides show state-level detail of unemployment rates and payroll employment.
