February 1998 TRENDS:

For the first time in several months, Wyoming's unemployment rate was higher than the U.S. rate (4.6% compared to 4.4%). This highlights the fact that while the U.S. economy has continued to show strong growth during 1997, Wyoming's has remained stagnant. This can be seen in the declining labor force, and is also confirmed by recently released Census Bureau figures showing that 3,398 more people moved out of Wyoming than moved in from July 1996 to July 1997. The number of total unique UI claimants also declined from 1996 to 1997, lending further support to this idea. --DB
