Michigan Unemployment
(2008-05-22)
(wgvu) - Seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates
declined in all 17 of Michigan's regional labor markets in April.
Total employment was up in most areas, while labor force levels
decreased in almost all regions.
State officials say the improved jobless rates were primarily
the result of seasonal work force dropoffs. Fewer people tend to be
job-hunting in early spring.
The biggest rate improvements were recorded in the northern
Lower Peninsula.
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 April was 6.9
percent.
