Unemployment rates for 94 of Tennessee's 95 counties dropped in April 2019 according to data released Thursday by the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development (TDLWD).
In Coffee County, the unemployment rate dropped to 2.6 percent, meaning of the 26,290 in the work force, only 670 are unemployed.
Statewide, 94 counties have rates lower than 5 percent and only one county's rate is higher than 5 percent.
"County unemployment rates continue to be extraordinarily positive," said TDLWD Commissioner Jeff McCord. "Across our state, we are now seeing unemployment rates at or below 5 percent become the norm."
Clay County has the state's highest rate in April at 5.6 percent, which is a 0.4 of a percentage point decrease from the previous month.
Statewide, unemployment remains at Tennessee's historic low of 3.2 percent. It is the third consecutive month the rate has been at the record level.
County unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted, while the state and national rates use the seasonal adjustment to eliminate outside influences on the statistics.
