As released in the Bureau of Labor Statistics report last month, Arizona’s unemployment rate, seasonally adjusted, dropped from 4.1 percent in November to 4.0 percent in December. Not seasonally adjusted, the unemployment rate rose from 3.6 percent in November to 3.2 percent in December. 

Locally, according to a newly released Bureau of Labor Statistics report released on February 1, the Yuma metropolitan area unemployment rate (not seasonally adjusted) dropped slightly from a staggeringly high 16.7 percent in November to 13.7 percent in December. 
Nearly three years after the COVID-19 pandemic drastically impacted local communities across the nation, Arizona continues to show resilience and make great progress towards recovering economic losses.
