Arkansas' unemployment rate declines to 7.4 percent

Hola Arkansas Staff

Labor force data, produced by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics and released by the Department of Workforce Services, show Arkansas' seasonally adjusted unemployment rate declined one-tenth of a percentage point, from 7.5 percent in November to 7.4 percent in December.
Arkansas' civilian labor force rose 2,600, a result of 3,200 more employed and 600 fewer unemployed Arkansans.
The United States' jobless rate dropped three-tenths of a percentage point, from 7.0 percent in November to 6.7 percent in December.
DWS Communications Director Becky Heflin said, "Arkansas' unemployment rate declined in December, largely the result of a gain in employment and a corresponding increase in the size of the civilian labor force. This is the second month in a row that Arkansas' employment has increased."
