South Carolina's jobless rate again inches up slightly

The unemployment rate of 3 percent is up slightly from 2.8 percent previous year.

Data released by the state Commerce Department on Monday show North Carolina's jobless rate only matched the national average in August, when both were at 4.4 percent. The total number of working Iowans decreased to 1,625,300 in January - 300 lower than in December and 800 lower than a year ago. "The state's employers are looking to hire the 51,000 job seekers". In this quarter, in annual terms, employment for the population 15 years old and over has an increasing trend: compared to the same quarter of 2016, total employment increased with 4.3 %. Many employers have said they're unable to add jobs because there is a lack of available talent with the right qualifications.

Manufacturing jobs were up by more than 3,100 in January. Gains were partially offset by losses in the Other (-1,500), which includes Mining and Logging, IT and Other Services, and the Professional and Business Services (-700) sectors.

Unemployment rates grew in January in each of the state's six metropolitan areas.

The January rate also was well below the USA rate, which was unchanged at 4.1 percent. Lincoln's preliminary rate rose three-tenths of a point to hit 2.7 percent, compared with 2.4 percent in December. New Hampshire and North Dakota recorded rates of 2.6 percent, and Hawaii's 2.1 percent was the nation's lowest rate in January. Comparatively, the national unemployment rate declined to 4.1 percent from 4.8 percent.

In February, the USA economy added 313,000 new payroll jobs, the biggest single monthly increase since July 2016.
