New data from the New Hampshire Department of Employment Security show the state lost 380 jobs last month, but that was offset by a shrinking labor force.

Retail, healthcare and education sectors had modest jobs gains, while manufacturing and construction were basically flat.

Since the start of the year, there’s been job growth in nearly every part of the state economy. The national unemployment rate is 4.6%
