The preliminary July 2013 jobless rate was .1 percentage points above the 8.4 percent rate re- corded for the state in July 2012. The U.S. seasonally ad- justed jobless rate dropped to 7.4 percent in July 2013 from 7.6 percent in June 2013, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Labor force statistics, including the unemploy- ment rate, are based on estimates from the Cur- rent Population Survey of households. It is designed to measure trends rather than to count the actual number of people working. It includes jobs in agricul- ture and those classified as self-employed. In July 2013, Kentucky's civilian labor force was 2,088,479, a decrease of 8,799 individuals compared to the previous month. Employment dropped by 10,708, while the number of unemployed people rose vey of business establish- ments that excludes jobs in agriculture and people who are self-employed, Ken- tucky's seasonally adjusted nonfarm employment rose by 9,500 jobs to 1,846,200 in July 2013 from the pre- vious month. On an over- the-year basis, the state's nonfarm employment has added 18,900 jobs. 'The two surveys usu- ally move in the same di- rection, but sometimes, as it happened in July, the numbers diverge. It's im- portant to remember that the surveys are measuring different aspects of the la- bor market. The popula- tion survey estimates the number of people working or not working while the business survey assesses the number of jobs. Some- times people have more than one job, so that may explain part of the dif- ference," said economist Manoj Shanker of the OEZ. Nonfarm data is provid- ed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Current Employ- ment Statistics program. According to this survey, seven of Kentucky's 11 ma- jor nonfarm North Ameri- can Industry Classifica- tion .System (NAICS) job sectors registered gains in same this month. Kentucky's trade, trans- portation and utilities sector gained 2,600 jobs in July 2013. This is the largest sector in Kentucky with 378,800 positions, and accounts for about 20 per- cent of nonfarm employ- ment. Since July 2012, jobs in this sector have jumped by 9,000. "Employment in both retail trade and the ware- housing sector showed gains in response to pent- up consumer demand," said Shanker. The construction sec- tor increased by 2,500 po- sitions in July 2013 from a month ago. Since July 2012, employment in con- struction has dropped by 600 jobs. "Construction employ- ment has declined in seven of the last 12 months," said Shanker. "Nationally, new- home sales have surged spurring construction. But Kentucky hasn't seen the same growth in new homes, though existing home sales have increased in response to low mort- gage rates." The educational and health services sector added 2,300 positions in July 2013. The sector has The financial activities sector gained 1,500 jobs in July 2013. Compared to July a year ago, busi- nesses involved in finance, insurance, real estate and property leasing have in- creased by 2,800 jobs. "Almost all of the growth has been in the finance and insurance market," Shanker said. "Homeown- ers have rushed to refi- nance before mortgage rates go up." The state's manufactur- ing sector grew by 1,500 positions in July 2013. Since July 2012, employ- ment in manufacturing has fallen by 1,400 jobs. 'ffypically, manufactur- ing, especially in durable goods industries, recovers slowly because of the capi- tal needed to jumpstart this sector. However, during this recovery nondurable goods manufacturing has lost momentum at times, especially in areas like plastics and chemicals," said Shanker. Kentucky's leisure and hospitality sector posted a gain of 1,400 jobs in July 2013. Since July 2012, the sector has grown by 12,000 positions or nearly 7 per- cent This sector includes arts, entertainment, recre- "Employment in hotels and restaurants has re- mained firm in response to consumer confidence and increased spending," said Shanker. The number of jobs in the other services sector, which includes repairs and maintenance, personal care services, and reli- gious organizations, rose by 200 positions in July 2013. Compared to a year ago, there has been a loss of 2,300 jobs. The information sector remained fiat in July 2013. This segment has declined by 1,800 positions since June 2012. The industries in this sector include tra- ditional publishing as well as software publishing; motion pictures and broad- casting; and telecommuni- cations. Employment in the min- ing and logging sector was unchanged from June 2013 to July 2013. The number of jobs in this sector has dropped by 2,100 since last July. The state's professional and business services sector lost 900 jobs in July 2013. This category includes establishments engaged in services that support the day-to-day ac- employment services. Since last July, jobs in the sector have increased by 2,700. The government sec- tor, which includes public education, public admin- istration agencies and state-owned hospitals, de- creased by 1,600 jobs in July 2013. The sector had 400 fewer jobs compared to July 2012. Civilian labor force sta- tistics include nonmilitary workers and unemployed Kentuckians who are ac- tively seeking work. They do not include unemployed Kentuckians who have not looked for employment within the past four weeks. Kentucky's statewide unemployment rate and employment levels are sea- sonally adjusted. Employ- ment statistics undergo sharp fluctuations due to seasonal events, such as weather changes, har- vests, holidays and school openings and closings. Seasonal adjustments elim- inate these influences and make it easier to observe statistical trends. However, because of the small sam- ple size, county unemploy- ment rates are not season- ally adjusted.
