The unemployment insight dashboard is now updated with May’s unemployment figures from the BLS. The unemployment rate dropped from 9.9% to 9.7%, in part due to the fact that approximately 200,000 people stopped looking for work and stopped being counted by the BLS as unemployed.
The long-term unemployment population, those out of work for 6 months or more, grew by an additional 47,000 people and account for 46% of all unemployed. That’s the equivalent to all the people (men, women, and children) in the entire state of Washington.
