Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce DevelopmentNashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and Department of Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Jeff McCord announced this week a preliminary statewide unemployment rate of 3.3 percent for January 2019.

Tennessee Unemployment Rate - January 2019

The seasonally adjusted rate for January mirrors the December 2018 unemployment rate of 3.3 percent which was revised down 0.3 of a percentage point from the month’s preliminary rate of 3.6 percent.

Tennessee has now had a statewide unemployment rate of 3.3 percent for the last four consecutive months.

“Tennessee continues to experience a strong economy with record low unemployment,” Lee said. “It is our goal to build on this foundation with several initiatives outlined in this week’s State of the State Address, including the GIVE Act which will help produce a highly-skilled, high-demand workforce in Tennessee.”

Total nonfarm employment in Tennessee increased by 8,300 jobs from December to January. The largest increases occurred in accommodations/food services, administrative/support/waste services, and arts/entertainment/recreation. Over the last year, nonfarm employment across the state grew by 61,200 jobs. 

“We continue to see low unemployment levels in our State,” McCord said. “Job creators are investing, and we are continuing our efforts to ensure they have the qualified workforce necessary for their businesses to succeed.”

Nationally, January’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 4.0 percent, up 0.1 of a percentage point from December. 

The statewide and national unemployment rates are 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 interested in new employment opportunities can find the latest job openings, receive assistance updating their resumes, and sharpen their job interview skills by visiting the state’s workforce development website.
