NH unemployment rate continues to drop gradually

CONCORD - The New Hampshire unemployment rate continues to drop - moving from 3.2 percent in November to 3.1 percent in December.

A year ago, the seasonally adjusted rate stood at 4 percent. In raw numbers, this represents a decrease of more than 4,000 Granite Staters no longer on the unemployment rolls since last year.

Nationally, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in December was 5 percent, unchanged from November.

Gov. Maggie Hassan issued a statement in response to the new figures on Wednesday. "The continued decrease in our unemployment rate, which fell to 3.1 percent in December, is a clear indicator that New Hampshire’s economy continues to strengthen," she said.
