Wyoming’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in January, the latest month that information is available, was 4.9 percent, unchanged from December, 2012. Wyoming’s rate remained well below the national rate of 7.9 percent. David Bullard, senior economist with the Research and Planning section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, says seasonally adjusted employment of Wyoming residents increased by 949 (0.3%) from December to January. The rate was also well below the 5.7 percent posted in January of 2012.

Bullard says nearly all county unemployment rates followed their normal seasonal pattern and increased from December to January. With colder weather and the end of the holiday season, employment tends to decrease in January in many different sectors, including construction, retail trade, leisure and hospitality and government.
