by | Jan 25, 2023 | News | 0 comments

The Utah Department of Workforce Services has provided updated unemployment numbers by County. Daggett County unemployment remained at 4.1%. Duchesne County unemployment ticked up from 2.9 to 3%. Uintah County stayed the same from the month before at 3.3% unemployment. December’s seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate for Utah remained at 2.2%. The national unemployment rate is 3.5%. “Utah ends the year in a strong economic position,” shares DWS Chief Economist Mark Knold. “All of 2022 will be categorized as a robust economic year for Utah. For most of the year, job growth was above average. Job availability and labor utilization was so pervasive that the unemployment rate fell to an historical low of 2.0%. This year starts with the unemployment rate at 2.2%, which still speaks to that same labor-strength platform. This is the launching point for Utah’s 2023 economy.”
