Ellis County’s percentage of unemployed slipped slightly again in March, falling from 6.5 percent in the month prior to 6.4 percent.

The decline comes on an increase of reported employed workers and a slight decrease in reported unemployed. In February, 70,830 workers reported gainful employment, with that number logged at 71,136 in March. Unemployment fell from 4,940 in February to 4,874 in March. The total workforce also grew to 76,010, about 300 more workers than the February figure.
