Boosted by increases in construction and hotel and casino jobs, Nevada's official unemployment rate dropped to 4.8 percent in March, down from 4.9 percent in February, the state of Nevada reported Wednesday.

The Labor Department says unemployment rates fell in 17 states in March and were mostly unchanged in 33.

Professional, Scientific and Business Services gained 800 (+0.1%) jobs over the month.

Maine's unemployment rate was 3.6 percent in March when not seasonally adjusted, the Labor Department said.




Financial Activities added 2,500 (+1.1%) jobs over the month.

In another measure of employment, total nonagricultural jobs dipped in March over February by 200 jobs. And it's a hair below the national unemployment rate of 4.5 percent.

The largest decrease occurred in the trade and transportation sector, which posted a loss of 5,800 jobs. "We remain focused on fostering an employment environment where businesses can grow and create jobs while having access to workers with the skills and training needed to fill them".

Employ Georgia, the GDOL's online job listing service at employgeorgia.com, showed 85,055 new job postings statewide for March. "While this is a positive economic indicator, there are thousands of good-paying jobs now available in IN that require in-demand skills". And the unemployment rate fell to 4.5 percent from 4.7 percent, as more Americans found jobs. "This month's rate shows the hard work of several state agencies is paying off", he concluded.
