DECEMBER 2012 COUNTY UNEMPLOYMENT RATES

NASHVILLE – County unemployment rates for December 2012, released today, show the rate decreased in two counties and increased in 93 primarily due to normal seasonal employment declines.  County unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted and reflect seasonal employment changes from month to month.
 
Specific county information is available on the Internet; enter http://www.tn.gov/labor-wfd/labor_figures/LaborDec12.pdf. 

Tennessee’s unemployment rate for December remained constant from the November revised rate of 7.6 percent. The national unemployment rate for December 2012 was 7.8 percent, also unchanged from the previous month.

The state unemployment rate is seasonally adjusted while the county unemployment rates are not. Seasonal adjustment is a statistical technique that eliminates the influences of weather, holidays, the opening and closing of schools, and other recurring seasonal events from economic time series. 

Marshall County’s December unemployment rate was up from November 2012 from 9.9 to 10.8%; however, it was down from a year ago December. That rate was 12%. The county with the highest unemployment rate is Scott County. Williamson County rated the lowest at 5% unemployment.
