That's 2 percentage points lower than the rate a year ago.

Bill Haslam and Department of Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Burns Phillips announced Thursday the November statewide unemployment rate posted significantly lower than Nov. 2016 and notably lower than the national average.

The county reported a revised 3.3% in October and 3.7% a year earlier. Information lost 200 jobs or 1.5 percent.

The lone morsel of positive news in the latest jobs report came from a revision of the October job report.

Year-over-year, leisure and hospitality gained the most, 8,400, led primarily by accommodation and food services, up, 6,200.

Klepper-Smith said given the now available economic data, CT is not likely to recover all the jobs it lost in the last recession until late 2020.

And more troublingly, the state's labor force faced a second consecutive month of significant decline - more than 15,000 fewer people in November.

Some private sector industries experienced job losses or remained flat.

The government sector also added 1,600 jobs and manufacturing added 1,100 jobs.

People receiving unemployment benefits declined 14% in one month to 256,961 compared with 299,272 in October.

The state Department of Labor says it appears that job growth is not keeping up growth in the working age population, noting a separate survey of state employers shows an even steeper decline of 3,000 jobs over the past two months - a trend that survey has seen over the past two years. That was down 28% from the 358,096 reported in November of past year.
