State and National Unemployment Rates for August
Minnesota’s unemployment rate fell two tenths of a percentage point in August to 4.3 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis.
This decrease was once again driven by a further reduction in labor force participation as baby boomers continue to retire. The participation rate fell in August to 69.8 percent, a rate last seen in September 1980. Despite this, Minnesota’s participation rate was tied for third-highest in the nation in July indicating that the falling participation rate is a nation-wide trend. Since breaking the three million mark for the first time last March, Minnesota’s labor force has shrunk by 21,670 individuals.
The national unemployment rate dropped to 6.1% in August.
