Economy > State says county’s labor force down slightly

By The Staff

Los Alamos County still has the lowest rate of unemployment of any county in the state, that according to the April 2015 numbers from the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions.
Los Alamos has an unemployment rate of just 3.4 percent, which is considerably below that of the statewide seasonally-adjusted average of 6.2 percent and is far and away the best number of any similarly-sized counties.
According to Workforce Solutions, of the 8,213 residents that make up the county’s labor force, only 282 of those were without employment in April.
The only county that was close to Los Alamos’ unemployment rate in April was Curry County, which had 4.1 percent unemployment, although Curry County — which is on the extreme east side of the state and includes the city of Clovis — has a workforce which is nearly three times that of Los Alamos.
April’s unemployment rate in the county was down slightly from March, which Los Alamos had a rate of 3.7 percent. However, Workforce Solutions noted that, in its revised March numbers, the Los Alamos labor force dropped by 53 persons.
The figure for Los Alamos for April 2015 was also down slightly from April 2014. Los Alamos’ rate a year earlier was 3.6 percent.
