Slight rise in Idaho unemployment for October

Kern County unemployment rate declines in October

Pennsylvania's unemployment rate was down one-tenth of a percentage point in October to 4.7 percent, its lowest rate in almost 10 years.

Nebraska's unemployment rate in October was 2.7 percent.

The last time Hawaii County's rate was 2.3 percent was in December 2006, before the start of the Great Recession. In Lincoln, the rate dropped from 2.3% to 2.1%.

Unemployment peaked at 11.1 percent in June 2011, and has since tapered down over the years.

Meanwhile, the statewide unemployment rate hit a record low during October.

The figures are seasonally adjusted.

Omaha's unemployment rate ticked to a near 20-year low, and Nebraska's is the lowest since 1999, according to a state Labor Department report.

Pennsylvania's nonfarm jobs count was down 4,300 from September's record high level to 5,973,800 in October.

Unemployment in Nebraska remains well under the national unemployment rate of 4.1%. The Omaha metro area's rate of 2.4 percent also was the lowest in almost 20 years. Gains in manufacturing (+4,200) outweighed losses in construction (-1,100) and mining and logging (-100), the state reported.

Government employment, at 772,600, increased by 3,300 positions.

Statistics show annual growth is strongest in the leisure and hospitality sector, with 7,100 jobs added.
