"The end of the public school year is captured in this month's (July) data. Combined with the timing of the monthly data collection, the results are somewhat atypical. The "not-seasonally-adjusted" data shows a significant decline while the "seasonally-adjusted data" shows a significant increase. The variability in the monthly changes will look less significant once the school year end and late-August to early-September/school year start months are accounted for in the overall data. The Vermont economy continues to grow consistent with the national economy, albeit at a slower pace than we would prefer; however, there are many job openings across various sectors, including construction, professional and business services, education, health services, and leisure and hospitality. Visit your local Department of Labor Career Resource Center to learn about job-placement and job training services available to you."
