Note
: These unemployment and job growth rates are estimates, which are primarily based on surveys created and mandated by the U.S. Bureauof Labor Statistics in cooperation with the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation.The unemployment rate is derived from Florida household surveys conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau under contract with the U.S. Bureau ofLabor Statistics. The job growth rate is derived from Florida employer surveys conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.Both estimates are revised on a monthly basis. In addition, these estimates are benchmarked (revised) annually based on actual counts fromFlorida's Unemployment Compensation tax records and other data.New procedures recently mandated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics may result in more variable month-to-month changes.

Florida’s Nonagricultural Employment by Industry (Seasonally Adjusted)
The number of jobs in Florida is 7,225,800 in July 2011, up 28,100 jobs compared to a year ago. July is thetenth consecutive month with positive annual job growth since the state started losing jobs in July 2007. Theindustry gaining the most jobs is leisure and hospitality (+41,800 jobs, +4.6 percent).
Other industries gaining jobs include private education and health services (+23,400 jobs, +2.2 percent); trade,transportation, and utilities (+7,700 jobs, +0.5 percent); professional and business services (+1,600 jobs, +0.2percent); and other services (+400 jobs, +0.1 percent).
These industry job gains are partially due to increases in food services and drinking places; ambulatory healthcare services; food and beverage stores; management/technical consulting services; and membershipassociations and organizations.
Industries losing jobs over the year include: construction (-23,000 jobs, -6.5 percent), total government (-16,900 jobs, -1.5 percent), information (-5,200 jobs, -3.9 percent), financial activities (-1,600 jobs, -0.3 percent), andmanufacturing (-300 jobs, -0.1 percent).
These industry job losses are partially due to losses in construction of buildings; federal government whichemployed temporary census workers last year; telecommunications; insurance carriers and related activities;and miscellaneous manufacturing.
Local Area Unemployment Statistics (Not Seasonally Adjusted)
In July 2011, Monroe County has the state’s lowest unemployment rate (6.6 percent), followed by WaltonCounty (6.9 percent), Liberty County (7.2 percent), Okaloosa County (7.4 percent), and Franklin County (7.8percent). Most of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates are those with relatively high proportions ofgovernment employment. Others have seasonal increases in tourism-related employment.
Hendry County has the highest unemployment rate (18.8 percent) in Florida in July 2011, followed by FlaglerCounty (14.7 percent); Indian River and St. Lucie counties (13.8 percent each); and Hernando County (13.7percent).
