Unemployment rates have continued to decline, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ most recent economic news release.
But the good news is not evenly spread. According to the report, 47 states saw a drop in unemployment numbers from March to April, but the remaining three either saw no change in unemployment or, in one case, even an increase.
Utah continues to rank among the states with the lowest unemployment numbers, joined by Wyoming, Vermont, South Dakota, North Dakota and Nebraska as states with an unemployment rate below 4 percent. The national average currently sits at 6.3 percent.
“The moral of the story is pretty clear,” Vox’s Matthew Yglesias said in response to the report. “If you want a job, head for Omaha or Salt Lake City or the wide open spaces of the Plains.”
