PHOENIX, Ariz. - The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for Arizona and the U.S. remained unchanged at 8.2 percent in June, according to a report released last week by Arizona Department of Administration Office of Employment and Population Statistics.

Seasonal over-the-month losses in Arizona total non-farm employment (-39,800) for June were the lowest since 2008. Although seasonal job losses are typical for Arizona in June, the loss this June was milder than what has been observed in recent years. Both government and the private sector lost jobs over the month. Four of the 11 major sectors added jobs and seven lost jobs in June, but the losses and gains in several sectors were relatively small. By far the largest job losses were in state (-9,600) and local (-29,400) public education due to the start of summer recess. Other services had the largest job gain (2,600).

Over the year, total non-farm employment posted the largest gain since November 2010 when Arizona first started to show over-the-year job gains after the recession. Nine major sectors had job gains, and two sectors had losses for a net gain of 57,300 jobs. The sectors that posted the largest gains were education and health services (12,200), trade transportation, and utilities (9,500), construction (9,200), and leisure and hospitality (8,800). Information (-200) and other services (-300) had relatively small losses.
