Omitted from DWD News Release: Wisconsin's February 2014 "Statistically Significant" Job Loss

Wisconsin 2nd in U.S. in job losses last month, new estimates show. (Capital Times, 3/30/2014)

The specifics.    Along with North Carolina (11,300 job losses) and Alaska (2,300 job losses), Wisconsin experienced a “statistically significant” decline in employment, according to a press release from the BLS. The Wisconsin losses included an estimated 7,900 government jobs, 5,000 jobs in professional or business services and 2,200 in manufacturing. Those losses were offset by gains of 900 jobs in construction, 700 in hospitality and 4,200 jobs in health care.

Caveat:  The estimates are based on a survey of 5% of employers.
