March unemployment counties

Williamson County was found to have had the single lowest unemployment rate in the state for the month of March.

Williamson County's unemployment rate, 3.3 percent for the month of March, was found to have increased over it's rate in February, according to the Tennessee Department of Labor.

Released last week, the new data for county-level March unemployment rates found that 86 of the state's 95 counties saw increases in their unemployment rates from February to March; five counties saw improvements in their unemployment rate, whereas four counties saw no monthly change.

Despite the increase, Williamson County was still found to have the single-lowest unemployment rate in the state, and was followed by Moore County at 3.6 percent and Wilson County at 4 percent. Lake County was found to have had the highest March unemployment rate at 8.9 percent.

Of Williamson County's three largest cities, Spring Hill was found to have had the highest unemployment rate for the month of March at 3.7 percent, an increase of .2 percentage points over February.

Brentwood's unemployment rate for March remained unchanged from its rate in February at 3.2 percent, and Franklin's unemployment rate in March was 3.1 percent, an increase of .2 percentage points when compared to February.

Unemployed Tennesseans can find free job search assistance and career development opportunities at any of the more than 80 American Job Centers across the state. Tennesseans can find the center nearest to them through this interactive map. Online, more than 240,000 active job listings are currently available on the state’s workforce development website.

The state also recently launched the Tennessee Virtual American Job Center (VAJC). The new website is located at www.TNVirtualAJC.com and allows Tennesseans to research different programs, from different state agencies, that can help them remove barriers to employment, so they can more easily reenter Tennessee’s workforce. The VAJC allows job seekers to do this on their schedule, anytime, anywhere.
