The state's jobless rate was 3.4 percent a year ago.

The January employment-to-population ratio estimate of 61.5 percent in ME remained above the 60.1 percent USA average, it said. This figure is up 42,908 from the 1,909,158 employed in 2016.

Note: This release incorporates revised historical labor force numbers and industry employment data. The Census Bureau accounts for those workers but does not release the data until two years after it is collected - meaning those numbers do not impact the labor-force participation rate. The survey of 71,000 California businesses measures jobs in the economy. The resulting gap caused the number of unemployed people to increase by 500. It includes jobs in agriculture and individuals who are self-employed.

In Albania, during the fourth quarter of 2017, the employment rate for the population aged from 15 to 64 is 58.2 %.

The low unemployment rates appear to be translating to higher wages for those with jobs. Kentucky's 4.9 rate was tied with Arizona and Pennsylvania. Putnam County's 5.5 percent is the fifth highest jobless rate in Florida.

Non-farm data is provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Current Employment Statistics program.

"This new peak employment milestone is a testament to the work that has been done by the Rauner administration to encourage competition, create jobs and reduce burdensome bureaucracy", Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Director Sean McCarthy said.

So where did all the legal sector jobs go? The January job gains were balanced with a reduction in the categories of real estate, retail trade, government, and transportation, warehousing and utilities.

A total of 85,879 individuals had gained a job since January 2017, while another 20,263 dropped out of the job market, for an overall increase to the labor force of 65,616. This growth is driven by hiring in the healthcare and social assistance subsector, which added approximately 3,800 jobs in 2017.

Other sectors with gains included construction, up 800, health care and social assistance, up 800, and leisure and hospitality, up 900. Pinellas, Walton and Lafayette counties also were at 3.7 percent. IL nonfarm payrolls were up 0.8 percent over-the-year in sharp contrast to the nation's 1.5 percent over-the-year gain in January. Comparatively, the national unemployment rate declined to 4.1 percent from 4.8 percent. Durable manufacturing added approximately 600 jobs, or 0.4 percent from 2016 to 2017 and non-durable manufacturing added roughly 1,200 jobs or 1.4 percent. "However, since the recession ended, Kentucky's manufacturers have been able to make up some of these losses".

California's eleven industry sectors added a total of 400,100 jobs over the year. The sector has declined by 8,200 jobs or 9.6 percent since 2007. This compares with 351,959 in December and 386,875 in January of previous year. The manufacturing sector added the most jobs in the state: 3,100. Whereas, in quarterly terms, total employment increased with 0.9 % compared to the third quarter of 2017. Mining and logging remained unchanged. Other industries included in the sector are forestry; oil and gas extraction; and support activities for mining. Anyone deemed to be "actively seeking employment" is counted in unemployment figures.
