Education jobs in Connecticut grow
Posted on July 29, 2018
A number of education jobs in Connecticut have been added, according to recent labor statistics.
| The state grew 6,100 net jobs (0.4%) in June 2018, to a level of 1,698,800, seasonally adjusted. Over the year, nonagricultural employment in the state grew by 14,900 jobs (0.9%). The May 2018 originally-released job gain of 4,100 was revised up by 2,000 to a gain of 6,100 over the month. The number of the state’s unemployed residents was estimated at 83,975 seasonally adjusted, down 918 from May. As a result, Connecticut’s June unemployment rate declined by one-tenth of a point to 4.4%, seasonally adjusted. Resident employment estimates include the self-employed and residents working out of state and are determined separately from the nonfarm payroll job estimates above.”June’s increase of 6,100 jobs overcame the entire decline we saw in March and April,” said Andy Condon, Director of the Office of Research. “Our three month average job growth has once again turned positive. The seasonally adjusted year over yearl job gain of nearly 15,000 jobs is very encouraging, but this number can be volatile. Our average annual gain for the last 12 months is 5,300, still ahead of last year’s pace. Construction and manufacturing are now the fastest growing sectors in the state’s labor market – a very good sign.”
