Tennessee’s low unemployment continued from 2018 into the new year, according to the latest numbers from the Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
Figures released Thursday show a preliminarily statewide unemployment rate of 3.3 percent for January 2019.
The seasonally adjusted rate for January mirrors the December 2018 unemployment rate of 3.3 percent, which was revised down three-tenths of a percent from the month’s preliminary rate of 3.6 percent.
Tennessee has now had a statewide unemployment rate of 3.3 percent for the last four consecutive months.
The department will release county unemployment data for January on March 14.
