January 1999 TRENDS
Wyoming nonagricultural employment grew by 2,600 new jobs over the year (1.2%). The service producing sector, which employs four-fifths of Wyoming’s workers, accounted for two-thirds of the new jobs. Statewide Unemployment Insurance (UI) initial claims increased in Mining (106.3%), the only industry to show an increase for both October and November. Wyoming’s unemployment rate (not seasonally adjusted) increased significantly to 4.4 percent from October, while the U.S. rate dropped to 4.1 percent in the same time period. -- Valerie A. Davis
