State Jobless Rate Holds Steady In February

Illinois’s unemployment rate held steady last month… even as employers added more than 6,000 jobs around the state. 


The net increase in jobs, despite harsh winter weather in February, came primarily in professional and business services and hospitality and leisure. 


The 8.7 percent jobless rate in January and February is the state’s best showing since February of 2009.
