Tennessee Statewide Unemployment Rate Remains Near Historic Low Levels

March 22, 2018 | Email This Post Print This Post
 

Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce DevelopmentNashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and Department of Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Burns Phillips today announced statewide unemployment remained near historic low levels in February with the preliminary rate at 3.4 percent.

February’s rate is up just 0.1 of a percentage point from January’s revised rate of 3.3 percent. Over the past 12 months, Tennessee’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate decreased a full percentage point from 4.4 percent to 3.4 percent and remains less than the national average of 4.1 percent.

Tennessee Unemployment Rate - March 2018

“Our consistent near-record low unemployment rate demonstrates that Tennessee’s fiscal conservative policies foster an environment where businesses can thrive and create jobs,” Haslam said. “As we continue to invest in our workforce though the Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect programs, Tennessee will lead in high-quality job growth.”

“The state of Tennessee works every day, with both employers and job seekers, to ensure there are jobs opportunities available across the state and there is a qualified workforce to fill those positions.” Phillips said. “This is one of the main reasons companies decide to locate or expand in Tennessee.”

The statewide unemployment rate is seasonally adjusted to eliminate the influences of weather, holidays, the opening and closing of schools and other recurring seasonal events from an economic time series.

Tennesseans can access the latest job openings across the state, as well as job interview preparation information, on the state’s workforce website.
