Snowman in Santa Hat December 1997 TRENDS:

Nonagricultural employment increased 0.4 percent from October 1996 to 1997. Employment in both Laramie and Natrona Counties also increased over the year, 0.3 percent and 2.0 percent respectively. The Wyoming Civilian Labor Force declined at a slower pace by falling 491 workers over the year. Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants continue to decline in Laramie and Natrona Counties, as well as statewide. Even with the slight increases shown in nonagricultural employment, the civilian labor force, unemployment rate and UI claimants continue to fall, which indicates that people are dropping out of the labor force, leaving the state or are working more than one job (refer "Multiple Jobholding Revisited: Why is it a Regional Phenomenon?"). --VAD
