NM Adds Jobs During September!

Nationally, the largest over-the-month percentage non-farm payroll employment increases during September were in the District of Columbia (+2.3 percent), New Mexico (+0.9 percent), and New Hampshire (+0.8 percent).

This means 7,100 job increase to 804,500 seasonally adjusted jobs in New Mexico.

This isn’t a year-over-year increase, which is what really counts, but then we shouldn’t quibble.
New Mexico’s unemployment rate was 8.2 percent during September, the same as August and down a tenth of a point from August.
