Arizona’s unemployment rate is running slightly less than the nationwide unemployment rate of 9.8 percent, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics.
According to statistics, a large majority of states are still seeing monthly growth in unemployment even though some are seeing flat numbers or actual declines.
The Arizona Department of Commerce reported that the state added 7,000 jobs in December but lost 3,600 – mostly in the government sector due to holiday breaks in public education. The state’s retail sector gained 4,000 jobs.*Sponsored Links*
