Nevada Unemployment Unchanged In July

7.7% Rate Same As June; More Jobs Added To Economy

LAS VEGAS (AP) — State officials say Nevada’s unemployment rate held flat at 7.7 percent in July.

The state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation reported Friday that while the number didn’t drop month-to-month, it was still down 2.2 percentage points compared with a year ago.

Gov. Brian Sandoval said he’s pleased that the state’s economic outlook remains positive, but added that Nevada needs to be vigilant to continue its slow but steady recovery.

The state also released jobless rates for its major metropolitan areas, although those statistics aren’t seasonally adjusted like the statewide numbers.

Las Vegas’ unemployment rate went up to 8.2 percent, while Carson City’s rate was flat at 7.9 percent and Reno’s held steady at 7.3 percent.
