Michigan Unemployment
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates
edged lower in 12 of Michigan's 17 regional labor markets in March.
But four areas of the state - around Detroit, Flint, Saginaw and
Bay City - saw regional unemployment rise, primarily because of
layoffs related to the United Auto Workers strike at American Axle
and Manufacturing Holdings Inc.
State officials say the Ann Arbor area's rate remained the same.
Regional unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted. But
national and state unemployment rates are adjusted to remove
seasonal influences such as production cycles, holidays, model
changeovers in the auto industry and climate conditions.
Michigan's seasonally adjusted jobless rate in March was the
highest in the nation at 7.2 percent.
