Tennessee's Unemployment is 14.7 Percent in April

Posted

NASHVILLE (May 21) Nationally, seasonally adjusted unemployment experienced a similar spike as in Tennessee. The April 2020 rate for the United States is 14.7%. That figure represents a 10.3 percentage point increase from the previous month’s rate.

The statewide unemployment rate is seasonally adjusted to eliminate the influences of weather, holidays, the opening and closing of schools, and other recurring seasonal events from an economic time series.

Tennesseans searching from new employment can find more than 150,000 current job openings on the state’s workforce development website, www.Jobs4TN.gov. The site also has information about job retraining opportunities, interview and resume techniques, as well as local job data.

The state of Tennessee will release the April 2020 county unemployment rates Thursday, May 28, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. CT.
