September 1998 TRENDS:

Total Nonagricultural employment rebounded in July showing a 0.7 percent increase over the year. The June estimates were also revised upward from -0.1 percent to +0.6 percent in over-the-year growth (see Figure). The goods-producing sector continued to lead the Wyoming economy for the seventh month in a row, registering 2.0 percent growth (900 jobs) from last year. Statewide, initial Unemployment Insurance claims were down 28.9 percent over the year. Continued UI claims fell 15.0 percent over the year and were down in every industry except Mining, which showed a 126 percent increase over the year. Federal legislation was recently passed which makes significant changes to the nation's employment statitstics program (see article by Senator Jeffords). For the first time ever, LMI shops from the region have combined their efforts and produced regional analysis. --DB
