Date: 8/19/2016 Information Contact 1: Bob Uhlenkott : (208) 332-3570 ext. 3217 : Information Contact 2: Craig Shaul : (208) 332-3570 ext. 3201 : Idaho Unemployment Rate Edges Up to 3.8% State's Over-the-Year Job Growth is Nation’s Fastest Strong job growth, a continued demand for workers and an increase in people looking for work edged Idaho's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate up slightly in July to 3.8 percent. Idaho regained its status as number one in the nation for over-the-year job growth in July with nearly 23,000 more jobs and a 3.4 percent increase driven by across-the-board gains in all industries. Construction showed the biggest gain with a 12.6 percent increase, followed by growth in financial activities, leisure and hospitality and other services. Month-to-month, growth in the state's seasonally adjusted nonfarm payrolls remained steady between June and July with an addition of 3,900 jobs and a 0.6 percent increase. Idaho's labor force increased by almost 1,500 to 811,850, total employment grew by 1,000 to 781,020 and after remaining flat for three consecutive months, the number of unemployed Idahoans increased by 500 in July. Combined, these factors resulted in a slight bump in the state's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate, up a tenth of a percent from June. The last time the state's unemployment rate showed any increase was in April 2015. The state's labor force participation remained unchanged at 64.1 percent. Nationally unemployment held steady at 4.9 percent. http://labor.idaho.gov/news/NewsReleases/tabid/1953/ctl/PressRelease/mid/3872/itemid/3010/Default.aspx Idaho Department of Labor
