Unemployment Rate In State Stays Flat In February

New Hampshire’s unemployment rate in February held steady at 5.8%. That’s according to new data from NH Employment Security.  The state has added nearly 8,000 private sector jobs in the past twelve months, but a growing labor force continues to keep the overall unemployment rate well above pre-recession levels.

New Hampshire continues to outperform most of New England. Only Vermont has a lower rate at 4.7%.

The national rate stands at 7.7%.
