Tennessee begins 2019 with continued low unemployment
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.
