CHICAGO, IL – The November unemployment rate in the Chicago‑Joliet‑Naperville Metro Division fell .02 to reach 8.1 percent while temporary layoffs pushed rates higher elsewhere, according to preliminary data released today by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES). Not seasonally adjusted data compares November 2013 to November 2012.

Illinois businesses added jobs in seven metros. Largest increases: Chicago-Joliet-Naperville (+1.5 percent, +55,300), Lake-Kenosha (+1.2 percent, +4,700), Champaign-Urbana (+0.9 percent, +1,000). Largest decreases: Decatur (-3.0 percent, -1,600), Peoria (-1.7 percent, -3,100), and Bloomington-Normal (-1.0 percent, -900). Much of these decreases are connected to a temporary slowdown in global manufacturing demand. Industry sectors recording job growth in the most metros: Education and Health Services (11 of 12), Leisure and Hospitality (eight of 12), and Other Services (seven of 12).

Not seasonally adjusted data compares the current month to the same month of the previous year. The November 2013 not seasonally adjusted Illinois rate was 8.3 percent and 12.2 percent at its peak in this economic cycle in January 2010. Nationally, the unemployment rate was 6.6 percent in November and 10.6 percent in January 2010 at its peak. The unemployment rate identifies those who are out of work and looking for work and is not tied to collecting unemployment insurance benefits. Historically, the state unemployment rate is higher than the national rate.
