Unemployment rate at 6.5 percent in December

EconomyAlaska’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.5 percent in December, essentially unchanged from November’s 6.4 percent. The comparable national rate was 5.0 percent.

Alaska’s seasonally adjusted rate showed no clear trend in 2015, consistent with other economic indicators that suggest last year’s economy was relatively flat.

The not-seasonally adjusted rate was 6.6 percent in December, up from November’s 6.4 percent. December was the first month in 2015 that the unadjusted rate was higher than the same month in the previous year.
