Shelby's unemployment plummets in April

-A A +A

County’s 5.8 percent rate is 2nd best in state, down big from 2011

By Steve Doyle

Shelby County’s unemployment statistics took another significant surge downward in April to 5.8 percent, the second-lowest rate in the state.

That figure declined from 7 percent in March and, more significantly, 2.7 percent from the 8.5 percent rate of April 2011.

Only Woodford County (5.1 percent) had a lower rate in April, but, among neighboring counties, both Spencer and Trimble counties has more precipitous drops. Spencer fell to from 10.1 in April 2011 and 8.0 in March to 6.5, and Trimble was down 10.5/9.2 to 7.6.
