Utah’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rates for local Counties remained steady. Daggett County remained at 5.4 percent. Uintah County also maintained the previous month’s rate at 10.2 percent and Duchesne County showed a slight decrease in unemployment from 9.6 percent to 9.4 percent. State unemployment ticked up from 3.8 to 4 percent with the national rate also shifting up by two-tenths of a percent to 4.9 percent. Department of Workforce Services Chief Economist Carrie Mayne credits the slight increase to a tightening labor market as job seekers respond to the economic growth in the state. The largest private sector employment increases in the State were in Trade Transportation and Utilities, followed by Education and Health Services.
