ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Officials say New Mexico has notched its 31st consecutive month of over-the-year employment growth in March.

The Department of Workforce Solutions said Tuesday that New Mexico’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.1 percent last month. That’s down from 6.8 percent a year ago.

The national unemployment rate was 5.5 percent.

Between March 2014 and March 2015, education and health services added 4,400 jobs, or 3.5 percent. This is up slightly from last month’s gain and accounted for just over 30 percent of total over-the-year gross job gains.
