The state unemployment rate dropped to 5.4-percent in September, giving Wyoming the 6th lowest rate in the country.

Senior Economist David Bullard of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services says the state economy seems to be growing stably.

“There appears to be growth in construction, as well as mining, including oil and natural gas… growth in accommodation in food services, and local government, which includes public schools, colleges and hospitals. So there are a number of sectors that appear to be growing around the state.”
