Wyandot County and Hancock County had the lowest unemployment rate in the area, with 3.1 percent. Manufacturing is one of the major employment sectors in the county. The amount of people employed and unemployed has also not changed, so the labor force for this county remains at 24,500.

Statewide, however, unemployment rates have decreased year-over-year.

Idahos labor force participation rate rose slightly for the fourth consecutive month from 63.5 to 64 percent, with the average share for men (70 percent) and women (58 percent) remaining stable for the past 12 months. Growth in seven industry sectors — construction; manufacturing; financial activities; education and health services; leisure and hospitality; other services and government — beat seasonal expectations, adding a total of 2,900 jobs.

Cheryl A. Mayforth, director of the Jefferson County Department of Employment & Training at the WorkPlace, said the unemployment rate typically rises in November because seasonal businesses close up for the winter, but a lack of holiday hiring from retailers and other private services, the second largest employment category in the county, this year pushed the rate even higher.

The Boise MSA showed the strongest over-the-year percentage increase in nonfarm jobs, up 2.9 percent, followed by Pocatello, 2.2 percent; Idaho Falls and Lewiston, 1.7 percent; and Coeur dAlene, up 1 percent.
