The five-county Wichita metropolitan area continued to have the highest unemployment rate in May, at 4.3 percent, three-tenths of a point higher than it was in April.

"We have more work to do matching those seeking work with the almost 63,000 jobs available across the state", said Cheryl Stanton, executive director of the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce in a written statement. That represents the number of people working or actively looking for a job.

Iowa's unemployment rate compared to a rate of 3.8 percent a year ago.

Alaska and New Mexico had the highest state unemployment rates in May, at 6.7 percent and 6.6 percent respectively. In Iowa, the trade and transportation sector led private industries in job gains last month.

Another factor slowing down the state job growth has been the loss in blue-collar jobs, both agreed. Grand Island's preliminary rate plunged to 2.9 percent from 3.5 percent in April. Kentucky has seen a 6.1 percent growth in information jobs since May 2016. "Anyone interested in finding work in Vermont - young or old - should contact their local American Job Center to learn about current employment and training opportunities available".

In May 2016, the rate was 5.3 percent.

Kentucky's education and health services sector showed the largest gains with 1,100 more jobs in May 2017. The federal job growth rate was 1.6 percent. The biggest job increases were in educational and health services, up 2.5%, and government, up 1.9%.
