State officials released figures this week that reflect more economic recovery for Nevada.
The Department of Employment Training and Rehabilitation said the unemployment rate in June sat at 4.7 percent.
This is the third month in a row the rate has been steady, and June’s rate is a full percentage point down from one year ago. Nevada also had the second strongest year to date decline in the unemployment rate in the nation.
Employment rates in the state reached a record high, with seasonally adjusted gain of 10,600 jobs in June. Nevada has seen year over year job gains for the past 78 months.
