On the Rebound: New Hampshire Unemployment Rate Fifth Lowest in the Nation

Concord, NH – Today, following the release of November unemployment rates by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, New Hampshire ranked as the fifth lowest state in the nation with an unemployment rate of 3.8%.

“Balancing public health and economic success has been a priority of my administration from the onset of this pandemic,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “We have worked diligently with industry stakeholders and public health officials to craft industry-specific guidance that keeps Granite Staters working while ensuring their safety. This latest economic news affirms that New Hampshire has taken the right approach and that our economy will come back stronger than ever as we near the end of this pandemic.”
