CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming's unemployment rate has dipped to 3.9 percent in June.

The rate is down significantly from May's 4.1 percent.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services noted that from June 2016 to June 2017, Wyoming's labor force dropped by an estimated 5,210 people, suggesting that individuals have moved to other states or have given up their job search.

From May to June, unemployment rates fell in 13 counties, rose slightly in nine counties and remained steady in Campbell County.

Fremont County posted the highest unemployment rate in June at 5.4 percent, followed by Natrona at 5.3 percent, Campbell at 5.1 percent and Sweetwater at 4.5 percent. The lowest unemployment rates were found in Teton at 2.2 percent, and Crook and Goshen at 3.1 percent.
