February 1999 TRENDS
Wyoming's unemployment rate (seasonally adjusted) decreased 0.3 percent, suggesting that the seasonal increase in unemployment from November to December 1998 was smaller than normally expected. Statewide Unemployment Insurance initial claims increased in Mining (22.4%); Mining was the only major industry to show an increase for each month of fourth quarter 1998. Wyoming statewide nonagricultural employment increased 1.1 percent from December 1997 to 1998, and Laramie and Natrona Counties showed employment growth as well (2.0% and 2.6%, respectively). -- Gayle C. Edlin
