Alabama's unemployment rate is three-tenths of a percent better than the US jobless rate of 4.1 percent. That number is also slightly up from last month's 3.3 percent, though county figures are not adjusted for seasonal job losses.

The agency reported that the USA economy added 313,000 jobs in February, marking the country's 89th consecutive month of job growth.

In 2016, there were 19.6 million blacks in the labor force, according to BLS. December's 2017 originally released job gain of 6,000 was revised down 300 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to a gain of 5,700 for the month. Most of the hiring occurred in administrative and support services (+3,000), while management of companies decreased 1,300. State jobs were made up by 1,700 jobs added to local government payrolls, a 0.2 percent increase. Alaska had the highest jobless rate, at 7.3 percent.
