ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate declined in April, dipping to 5% from 5.1% in March.

The unemployment rate in April 2018 was 4.9%, and the state Department of Workforce Solutions reports that total nonagricultural payroll employment grew by 13,000 jobs, or 1.5%, between April 2018 and April 2019.

The department says the growth in the private sector accounted for all of the year-over-year employment increase as the public sector lost 800 jobs.

In the private sector, goods-producing industries added 5,800 jobs and service-providing industries were up by 8,000 jobs.

Mining and construction reported the largest employment increase with a gain of 5,500 jobs, or 7.7%.
