Utah Unemployment

According to information compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is a division of the Department of Labor of the United States of America, Unemployment in Utah has increased over the six month period between March 2010 and August 2010. In March, the Civilian Labor Force in Utah was just under 1,345,000 individuals. By August, the Civilian Labor Force in Utah had increased to 1,000,051 jobs. Over that same period, unemployment in Utah in March involved 97.5 thousand individuals, while unemployment in Utah by August had increased to 100.5 thousand people.

There have been very few mass layoff events in the 11 major categories which the Bureau of Labor Statistics monitors. The 11 non-farm categories that the Division of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics monitors are:

· Mining and logging

· Construction,

· Manufacturing

· Trade, Transportation and Utilities

· Information

· Financial Activities

· Professional and Business Services

· Education and Health Services

· Leisure and Hospitality

· Government Jobs

· and other services.


The Trade, Transportation, and Utilities industries are the largest employers in the state, followed closely by the Government. However, this gap is beginning to close, with the Government sector growing by almost one thousand jobs between March 2010 and August 2010, while the Trade, Transportation, and Utilities industries shed nearly as many jobs.
