Unemployment Rate at 6.4 Percent in March 2017

JUNEAU, Alaska— Alaska’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.4 percent in March, unchanged from February. The comparable national rate was 4.5 percent.

While Alaska has been losing jobs for over a year now, employment loss doesn’t necessarily lead to higher unemployment rates. To be counted as unemployed, a person must remain in the state and be actively seeking work. March’s not-seasonally...
