Arizona’s labor market remains tight, but the preliminary unemployment rate data suggest that a gradual loosening has begun. The state’s seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate ticked up to 4.1% in November, from 3.9% in October (Exhibit 3). That was a bit above the national rate of 3.7%, although not (statistically) significantly higher. As state job growth slows next year, the unemployment rate is likely to continue trending up.
