America   The January 2019 originally-released job gain of 1,000 was revised down

Preliminary Connecticut nonfarm job estimates from the business payroll survey administered by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show the state lost 400 net jobs (0.02%) in February 2019, to a level of 1,693,900 seasonally adjusted.


Over the year, nonagricultural employment in the state grew by 4,600 jobs (0.3%).

The January 2019 originally-released job gain of 1,000 was revised down sharply to a loss of 2,500.

The number of the state’s unemployed residents was estimated at 73,900, seasonally adjusted, unchanged from January.

As a result, Connecticut’s February unemployment rate is at 3.8%, seasonally adjusted, unchanged from the revised January level.

Resident employment estimates include the self-employed and residents working out of state and are determined separately from the nonfarm payroll job estimates above.

None of the movements in payroll job estimates or residential employment are considered statistically significant.
