Green Bay metro area's Feb. unemployment worsens after skyrocketing in Jan.

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay metropolitan area’s unemployment worsened in February after skyrocketing in January. 

The jobless rate increased from 7.3% to 7.6% in February. 

That’s according to new numbers from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development released Wednesday.  The unemployment rate is based on a household survey. 

There was a net loss of 100 jobs in February.  That data is derived from a very small survey of employers. 

The data is preliminary and local jobs numbers are not seasonally adjusted.  The data is typically revised months later.
