August 1998 TRENDS:

Statewide, nonagricultural wage and salary employment decreased slightly (-0.1%) from June 1997 to 1998. In Laramie and Natrona Counties, increases occurred (1.7% and 2.0%, respectively). However, the increases in Laramie and Natrona Counties could simply reflect a recent change in how the employment estimates are produced. Wyoming's labor force increased by 8,331 (3.3%) from May to June 1998 and 9,119 (3.6%) over the year from June 1997 to 1998. The number of employed also increased over the same time periods by 7,540 (3.1%) and 9,915 (4.1%), respectively. Wyoming's unemployment rate (not seasonally adjusted) was 4.2 percent compared to the national rate of 4.7 percent; Wyoming continued to show a lower unemployment rate than the U.S. for the second month in a row. --VAD
