Unemployment dropped slightly in April

May 21, 2013

Wyoming’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell slightly from March to April of this year.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services reported that the unemployment rate shrank in almost every county last month. The biggest decrease happened in Sheridan County, where unemployment dropped from 6.8 percent to 5.7 percent.

Converse County has the lowest unemployment rate in the state, where it dropped half a percent to 3.5.

The only county where unemployment increased was Teton County. The Department of Workforce Services says the 3-percent increase is normal, because seasonal jobs are terminated at the end of ski season.
