Michigan's Jobless Rate Down In May
Monday Jun 19, 2017 12:41pm

By: Mike Stiles

The jobless rate across Michigan was down during the month of May.

The Department of Technology, Management and Budget reports that the State's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped by a half a percentage point from April to 4.2 percent.

The State's workforce fell by 21,000 over the month while total employment edged upward by 3,000. The number of unemployed in Michigan declined by 24,000 in May.

The Michigan jobless rate in May was six-tenths of a percentage point below the State's rate of 4.8 percent one year ago. The national jobless rate decreased by four-tenths of a percentage point over the same period.

Jason Palmer, Director of the Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, says Michigan's jobless rate reduction in May primarily reflects fewer residents in the state workforce, rather than a significant monthly gain in hiring.
