Michigan Unemployment
(2008-08-21)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates
rose in 16 of Michigan's 17 regional labor markets in July.
The only place the rate dropped was in the
Detroit-Warren-Livonia area.
State officials said Thursday the jobless rates worsened in some
areas in part because of typical summer shutdowns in auto plants
for retooling and vacation. The summer break for schools also adds
to regional unemployment.
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 July seasonally adjusted jobless rate was 8.5
percent, highest in the nation.
