The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development released its December 2017 edition of Alaska Economic Trends."
"In December Trends, we look at 10 possible reasons unemployment insurance claims are at historic lows, which may seem counterintuitive while the state is in a recession, and at how the unemployment insurance program performed in 2016. Also in this issue is a brief analysis of average wage growth across the state over the last decade, and an overview of Alaska’s population today and its historical growth patterns."
