January 1998 TRENDS:

Wyoming's total civilian labor force fell 1,036 from November 1996 to 1997 (see "Wyoming Economic Indicators"). In fact, the labor force has been declining in year-to-year comparisons since March 1997, again indicating that people are leaving the state and/or dropping out of the labor force. Population estimates recently released by the Census Bureau also support this theory, indicating that Wyoming's population declined slightly from 480,011 in July 1996 to 479,743 in July 1997. Wyoming was one of only five states which experienced any decline in population over that time period (North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and West Virginia, along with the District of Columbia also had declining populations from July 1996 to 1997). --GCE
