Lansing, MI.

(LANSING) – Unemployment was down in Michigan for the month of July.

Information released by the Department Of Technology, Management & Budget shows the State's unemployment rate went down in July by one-tenth of a point to 4.3 percent. Total employment advanced by 6,000 over the month while the number of unemployed declined by 7,000.

The July rate for 2018 was two-tenths of a percentage point below the State's rate for July 2017 which was 4.5 percent. It was also four-tenths of a percentage point above the national rate of 3.9 percent.

Jason Palmer, Director of the Bureau Of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives says Michigan's labor market has been steadily improving through 2018. He says the State's July jobless rate was the lowest since 2000.
