Kentucky Unemployment Increases Compared to 2012

Dec 26, 2013

The unemployment rate has risen over the past year in 96 of Kentucky’s 120 counties. 

Data from the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training shows that the statewide unemployment rate for November was up slightly over last year at 7.7%, with an increase of three-tenths of a percent.

Workforce Development Cabinet Economist Manoj Shanker says the increase reflects a particularly devastating year for Eastern Kentucky communities, which have the highest unemployment rates in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Office of Employment and Training said the commonwealth’s April unemployment rate has fallen 0.3 percent from a year ago and has dropped a tenth of a point from March 2013.

Kentucky’s 7.9 percent rate reflects a similar trend in national numbers over the same period.
