Wyoming's unemployment rate fell in 22 of the state's 23 counties in September.
The only county to see an increase was Teton County, where the rate increased three tenths of a percent from 4.1% in August to 4.4% in September.
Sublette County continued to have the lowest rate in the state, and certainly one of the lowest in the country, at 3%.
In Natrona County, the rate between August and September dropped 6-tenths of a percent to just 4.3%. Laramie County's number fell even more, dropping by 7-tenths of a percent to 5.2%. In Fremont County had the highest unemployment rate in the state, but it's rate dropped a full percentage point from 6.6% to 5.6%.
The counties that saw the biggest decrease between August and September were Big Horn and Goshen, where the rates dropped from 6.2% to 5.0% and 5.8% to 4.6% respectively.
The statewide number went down by 3-tenths of a point, and now stands at 5.4%.
State Economist David Bullard notes that nearly all of the unemployment rates followed normal seasonal patterns.
