Persons Working in Jobs Covered by Wyoming State Unemployment Insurance, Third Quarter 2012

After increasing for eight consecutive quarters, the number of new persons working in Wyoming decreased from year-ago levels (-7.0%). The total number of persons working in Wyoming increased by 6.6% compared to 2011Q3. This may suggest that Wyoming employers added fewer nonresident workers in 2012Q3. This topic will be explored in the April 2013 issue of Wyoming Labor Force Trends.

A new person is someone who has not previously worked in Wyoming dating back to 1992, the earliest year for which these data are available.
