by: Brad Payne, Economist

"Unemployment rates in Uinta (up from 4.7% to 6.4%), Campbell (up from 2.7% to 3.4%), and Natrona (up from 3.9% to 4.5%) counties seem to be affected by recent job losses in Mining."

NOTE: The Current Population Survey (CPS) estimated the 2001 annual average Wyoming unemployment rate at 3.9 percent.
