City Econ Director: State Overestimated City's Unemployment Numbers


Springfield’s unemployment picture may not be as bad as recent state numbers suggest.

 

The most recent monthly numbers, from March, put unemployment in the city at 7.8%... up from the same time a year earlier.

 

But city economic development director Mike Farmer says the city has objected.

 

Farmer says the state overestimated job losses in some sectors and failed to account for seasonal employment.

 

Farmer says the state is reviewing its numbers and could revise the figure.
