OH added 4300 jobs in October as unemployment rate fell to 5.1%

Hawaii County's unemployment rate during October tied a record low set more than 10 years ago. Private sector jobs, a subset of total nonfarm jobs, decreased by 1,700 from the previous month.

Luo also noted that the unemployment rate for young people aged 15 to 24 dropped by one percentage point to 9.5 percent.

Last month's rate is well below the state's October 2016 rate of 6.1 percent.

The labour force declined by about 4,900, from 3.965m in July to September to 3.960m in August to October 2017, according to China News.

Nationally, the unemployment rate was 4.1 percent.

Job gains were reported in sectors including educational and health services, leisure and hospitality, financial activities, professional and business services, other services, and trade, transportation and utilities.

Government employment, at 772,600, increased by 3,300 positions. Employment and unemployment were both down, as well.
