Tennessee Unemployment Holds Steady in Year-to-Year Comparison

August 17, 2019 | Email This Post Print This Post
 

Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce DevelopmentNashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development (TDLWD) recently released a year-to-year comparison unemployment data which shows the July 2019 statewide seasonally adjusted rate of 3.5 percent matches the figure from the same month a year ago.

July 2019 Tennessee and United States Unemployment Rates

The July 2019 statistic represents a small increase of 0.1 of a percentage point when compared to June’s revised unemployment rate of 3.4 percent.

“Summer is a time of year when Tennesseans are in transition,” said TDLWD Commissioner Jeff McCord. “People are moving, coming home and going back to school, changing jobs, and taking time for themselves which impacts unemployment at various levels across the state.”

While the unemployment rate did inch upward, Tennessee employers still created thousands of new jobs in July. Nonfarm employment increased across the state by 4,000 jobs between June and July. The leisure/hospitality sector saw the most growth, followed by the manufacturing and education/health services sectors.

Over the last 12 months, nonfarm employment in Tennessee grew by 55,100 new positions, with the majority of those jobs in the leisure/hospitality, manufacturing, and trade/transportation/utilities sectors.

Nationally, the unemployment situation remained steady in July. The seasonally adjusted rate of 3.7 percent mirrored the United States rate from June. In a year-to-year comparison, unemployment across the country dropped by 0.2 of a percentage point last month compared to the same time period in 2018.
