Teton County still led the state in unemployment last month even though this is the height of tourist season.  The Research & Planning section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services has reported that the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate decreased from 5.1% in November to 4.9% in December, down from its year-ago level of 5.6% and significantly lower than the current U.S. rate of 7.8%. And while Teton County’s unemployment rate followed its normal seasonal pattern and fell from 9.7% in November, it was still 7.3% for the highest jobless rate in the state during December.  The jobless rate in Teton County in December of 2011 meanwhile was 8.1%.  Sublette County remained the county with the lowest unemployment rate at 3.6%.  Most county unemployment rates around the state changed very little from November to December.
