From page A3 | July 05, 2013 |

The unemployment rate in the Sacramento-Arden Arcade-Roseville MSA was 7.8 percent in May 2013, down from a revised 8.2 percent in April 2013, and below the year-ago estimate of 10.3 percent. This compares with an unadjusted unemployment rate of 8.1 percent for California and 7.3 percent for the nation during the same period.

The unemployment rate was 8 percent in El Dorado County, 7 percent in Placer County, 8 percent in Sacramento County, and 7.9 percent in Yolo County.

Between April 2013 and May 2013, total wage and salary employment located in the counties of El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo increased by 4,900 to total 842,500 jobs.

Farm led the month-over expansion with a 1,500-job gain, a normal seasonal increase.
Professional and business services added 1,400 jobs. The gain in administrative and support and waste services (up 1,500 jobs) more than offset the slight loss in professional, scientific, and technical services (down 100 jobs).

Leisure and hospitality recorded the largest April-to-May increase since 1991 with an addition of 700 jobs. Other services was the only sector to report a decrease for the month (down 400 jobs). Between May 2012 and May 2013, total jobs located in the region increased by 6,700, or 0.8 percent.

Professional and business services picked up 4,700 jobs over the year. Professional, scientific, and technical services (up 3,100 jobs), administrative and support and waste services (up 1,400 jobs), and management of companies and enterprises (up 200 jobs) all contributed to the expansion.

Trade, transportation, and utilities added 4,000 jobs, mostly in retail trade (up 2,800 jobs).

Educational and health services added 2,200 jobs. The bulk of the job gains were in health care and social assistance (up 1,500 jobs), although education services contributed 700 jobs.

Construction cut back 2,800 jobs. All components of the industry registered decline over the year, including specialty trade contractors (down 500 jobs) and construction of buildings (down 300 jobs).
