Wyoming Unemployment Falls to 3.7% in March

The Research and Planning section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services reported that Wyoming’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell from 3.9 percent in February, to 3.7 percent in March.

The state’s unemployment rate was slightly lower than the current U.S. rate of 3.8 percent. Most county unemployment rates changed very little from February to March and that is the case for Sheridan and Johnson Counties.

When compared to March of last year, the unemployment rate dropped significantly in Sheridan County from 5.1 percent in 2018 to 4 percent in March of this year. Wyoming Department of Workforce Services Senior Economist David Bullard said that he expects the unemployment numbers continue to decrease as we get into the summer months.

Bullard said that the lowest unemployment rate in the state was found in Teton County at 2.4 percent, while the highest rate was in Washakie County at 4.9 percent.
