JUNE COUNTY UNEMPLOYMENT RATES RELEASED
95 COUNTIES INCREASE
NASHVILLE – County non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rates for June 2006, released today, show that all 95 counties increased. The increase in Tennessee’s county rates is largely due to the seasonal closing of schools, increasing the amount of unemployed students and workers into the labor market. Tennessee’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for June 2006, which was released last week, was 5.6 percent, 0.2 percentage point higher than the May rate of 5.4 percent.
