Tuesday, September 25, 2012

 

The August 2012 seasonally unadjusted unemployment dropped in 17 areas of the Commonwealth, according to the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development.

It was also reported today that the unadjusted unemployment rates remained unchanged in three areas and rose in two areas over the past month. Over the past year, unemployment rates have dropped in all 22 of the Commonwealth's labor areas.

Statewide, the seasonally unadjusted unemployment rate of 6.4 percent is down 0.2 percent from the July report. The largest gains of any labor market came in the Worcester area, followed by the Brockton-Bridgewater-Easton area.
