The state is set to release its latest jobs report today.
The August report from New Hampshire Employment Security put the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate at 3.6 percent, down a tenth of a point from July.
That’s in line with the generally strong jobs picture we’ve seen throughout the course of the year.
But one of the reasons the rate fell in August was a drop of about 1,400 in the size of the labor force.
The September numbers that come out today will give the state another look at how these two factors – the growing number of jobs and the size of the labor force – are affecting New Hampshire's economy.
