Niobrara Numbers Misleading

Laramie, Wy – While state figures show a huge drop in Niobrara County's unemployment over the past year, there also seems to be a huge drop in the labor force. According to State Economist Dave Bullard, that could mean that people have simply left area communities. That seems to be backed up by Census numbers that show the population fell by a hundred residents from 2000 to 2002.
