Across the state, unemployment rates fell in 93 of North Carolina’s 100 counties in April, increased in three and remained the same in four. When compared to the same month last year, unemployment rates declined in 88 counties, increased in 11, and remained the same in one.

Currituck County had the state’s lowest unemployment rate in April at 5.3 percent, and Scotland County had the highest unemployment rate at 17.4 percent.

For a list on each county unemployment numbers click on this pdf site from NCESC http://www.ncesc1.com/PMI/Rates/Pres...untyRate_M.pdf

Im not posting this thread to say things are getting better or worse, more just as a statistic of unemployment numbers release by Dept of commerce in April. May numbers will be release June 15th.

According to that list the state unemployment rate is still high IMO at 9.1
I would love for you to look at the list and discuss these numbers on why each county numbers are the way they are.

I think the unemployment numbers are still high as majority of them 8% or higher. Some of the counties on low side I havent heard of and Im not sure what city or industry is there, maybe we can analyses these numbers.

The month of May numbers has 76 of 100 counties unemployment rate rose. The state average in May is 9.4 one of highest in nation.
Currituck County had the state’s lowest unemployment rate in May at 5.2 percent, and Scotland County had the
highest unemployment rate at 16.9 percent. Both numbers are lower than previous month and seasonal work probably also a factor.

Of course it dropped, the unemployment benefits ran out for thousands collecting them. The increase in food stamps and new Welfare cases is skyrocketing here and accross the USA. The NCESC unemployed rates are those still collecting benefits. This number will continue to decrease as more are loosing benefits. Hello Welfare, a storm is comin your way - get ready to Rumble!

Since we live in a state which already has all those nice things the Repub. are calling for in other states, I wonder why we have not seen a large increase in the "Job Creators" creating jobs? Now I know that there will be claims that Govt Regs. are slowing down growth but what are they? I have found that there there are no regs. here that stop job creation.

I believe its a matter of demand and with lower incomes in NC comes less demand and the ability to support certain industries that will create jobs.
I see that spending by local govts. is being cut and issues such as road repairs and general maintainence of facilities are being cut, long term this does not help and it could help local business with some demand for its owners and employees.
