U.S. monthly unemployment rate

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics - the principle fact-finding agency for the U.S. Federal Government in labor economics and statistics - unemployment declined from 2010 to 2017. A trend of decreasing unemployment followed after a high in 2010 resulting from the 2008 financial crisis. Unemployment fell from 9.6 percent in 2010 to 4.4 percent in 2017.

Additional statistics from the BLS paint an interesting picture of unemployment in the United States. In October 2018, the state with the highest (seasonally adjusted) unemployment rate was Alaska with a 6.74 percent unemployment rate, followed by District of Columbia and West Virginia. Unemployment was the lowest in Hawaii at 2.3 percent. Workers in the agricultural and related industries suffered the highest unemployment rate of any industry at 6.7 percent as of November 2018 (not seasonally adjusted).

Supplementary notes
Seasonal adjustment is a statistical method used to remove the seasonal component of a time series that is used when analyzing non-seasonal trends. It is normal to report un-adjusted data for current unemployment rates, as these reflect the actual current situation. Seasonally-adjusted data may be used for the longer term comparison. Unlike trend and cyclical components, seasonal components, theoretically, happen with similar magnitude during the same time period each year. The seasonal component of a series is often considered to be uninteresting in its own right and may cause the interpretation of a series to be ambiguous. By removing the seasonal component, it is easier to focus on other components.
