For the month of December, both the Current Employment Statistics (CES) and Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) programs indicated statewide annual employment growth around one or two percent. Although dated, the most recent State UI Covered job count indicated a similar trend. Total covered employment was up just over two percent in the second quarter 1993 compared to the same quarter in 1992. Statewide total payroll was up 4.5 percent and the average annual income for all workers registered $21,476, up 2.2% over the previous year.

The LAUS program indicated notable annual employment growth in Laramie, Lincoln, Sheridan, and Teton counties. Industries which indicated the greatest growth from last year in November were retail trade (+1,100), oil & gas extraction (+900), and services (+800).

Unemployment, at 4.6 percent in November, was up seasonally from last month and about the same as last year which registered 4.2 and 4.7 percent. Seasonally adjusted, the statewide rate at 4.9 percent compared to the national rate of 6.4 percent. Sublette and Albany counties had the lowest unemployment, at 2.5 and 2.6 percent. Uinta had the highest at 6.9 percent.
