North Carolina Unemployment Falls in August


North Carolina’s unemployment rate fell to 4.6%, the lowest since April of 2007.  While that appears, on its face, to be good news for the people of North Carolina, the numbers can be a bit misleading.  Although the number of unemployed North Carolinians fell, so too did the number of employed people in North Carolina, generally in the governmental sector.  North Carolina does continue to outpace the current national average (4.9%) and is far exceeding North Carolina’s unemployment rate of August, 2015 (5.7%)
