The largest over-the-yearpercentage decrease in employment occurred in Rhode Island (-1.6 percent), followed by Wisconsin(-0.8 percent) and Alaska and Missouri (-0.5 percent each).Regional Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)The West continued to record the highest regional unemployment rate in July, 9.4 percent, while theMidwest again reported the lowest rate, 7.5 percent. Over the month, three regions experiencedstatistically significant unemployment rate changes: the Northeast (+0.3 percentage point), Midwest(+0.2 point), and South (+0.1 point). Significant over-the-year rate changes occurred in the Midwest,South, and West (-1.1 percentage points each). (See table 1.)Among the nine geographic divisions, the Pacific continued to report the highest jobless rate, 10.0percent in July. The West North Central again registered the lowest rate, 5.8 percent. Five divisionsrecorded statistically significant over-the-month unemployment rate changes: the East South Central,
  2. 2. Middle Atlantic, and New England (+0.3 percentage point each) and the East North Central and SouthAtlantic (+0.2 point each). Eight divisions had measurable rate changes from a year earlier, all of whichwere decreases. The largest of these declines occurred in the East North Central (-1.3 percentage points).State Unemployment (Seasonally Adjusted)Nevada continued to record the highest unemployment rate among the states, 12.0 percent in July.Rhode Island and California posted the next highest rates, 10.8 and 10.7 percent, respectively. NorthDakota again registered the lowest jobless rate, 3.0 percent. In total, 23 states reported jobless ratessignificantly lower than the U.S. figure of 8.3 percent, 8 states had measurably higher rates, and 19states and the District of Columbia had rates that were not appreciably different from that of the nation.(See tables A and 3 and chart 1.)Eighteen states had statistically significant over-the-month unemployment rate changes in July, all ofwhich were increases. The largest of these increases occurred in Alabama and Alaska (+0.5 percentagepoint each). The remaining 32 states and the District of Columbia recorded jobless rates that were notmeasurably different from those of a month earlier, though some had changes that were at least as largenumerically as the significant changes. (See table B.)Seventeen states and the District of Columbia reported statistically significant unemployment ratedecreases from July 2011, the largest of which occurred in Florida, Mississippi, and Nevada (-1.8percentage points each). New York experienced the only statistically significant over-the-year increasein its unemployment rate (+0.9 percentage point). (See table C.)Nonfarm Payroll Employment (Seasonally Adjusted)In July 2012, nine states recorded statistically significant over-the-month changes in employment, sevenof which were increases. The largest statistically significant job gains occurred in California (+25,200),Michigan (+21,800), and Virginia (+21,300). Statistically significant declines in employment occurredin New Jersey (-12,000) and Alaska (-3,400). (See tables D and 5.)Over the year, 27 states experienced statistically significant changes in employment, 26 of which wereincreases. The largest increase occurred in California (+365,100), followed by Texas (+222,500), NewYork (+113,300), and Ohio (+100,300). The only decrease occurred in Rhode Island (-7,300).
