Unemployment In Springfield Up A Full Percentage Point Since December

Springfield’s jobless rate has risen a full percentage point since December. 


Latest figures from the state of Illinois put February’s local jobless rate at 8.6%... up from 7.6% in December and 8.2% in January.  The rate is still lower than February of 2013, when it stood at 8.9% locally. 


The harsh winter weather may have taken a toll on employment… even though the city had slightly more payroll jobs last month than it did a year earlier.  Springfield still has the second-lowest unemployment rate in the state… while Danville has now surpassed Decatur for the worst jobless rate.
