The New Hampshire Department of Employment Security says unemployment is slightly up for the month of July.

More than 4,400 jobs were lost between June and July, bringing the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate to 5.4 percent. That’s an increase of .3  percentage points. The total number of employed residents was just shy of 700,000.

The New Hampshire unemployment rate is still well below the national rate of 8.3 percent, which also went up a tenth of a percent from June.
