The Arkansas unemployment rate increased by one-tenth of a percent in August to stand at 3.5 percent.

Indiana's labor force increased by 4,615 from the previous month due to an 8,007 decrease in employment and a 12,622 increase in unemployment. It says there is recent precedent for that possibility, noting that both 2014 and 2015, Delaware's unemployment rate rose above the national rate, only to later be revised back down below it. In August, the US jobless rate stood at 4.4 percent, up one-tenth of a percentage point from July but down five-tenths of a percentage point from August 2016.

Non-seasonally adjusted jobless rates in all of Delaware's major cities and counties rose slightly or remained steady in August.
