The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics also released preliminary estimates on Thursday showing the state gained 4,800 jobs in October.

The national rate was 4.1 percent in October, down from 4.2 percent in September and 4.8 percent in October 2016.

The statewide figures put Nebraska in good company among states with the country's lowest unemployment rates. The largest increase over the past 12 months was in professional & business services (up 24,500), while the largest decline was in manufacturing (down 3,600). "Our workforce-development programs continue to prioritize closing skills gaps and connecting all citizens of the Commonwealth to prosperous career pathways", Labor and Workforce Development Secretary Rosalin Acosta said.

Maine's unemployment rate fell slightly in October, to 3.5 percent.

The private service-providing sector, at 3,863,100, lost 2,000 jobs.
