ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose to 6.4 percent in June, up from 6.2 percent in May but down from 6.6 percent a year earlier.

The state Department of Workforce Solutions said Tuesday the state added 12,700 jobs in June, a 1.6 percent increase since June 2014 as the state notched its 34th consecutive month of over-the-year job growth.

The education and health services industry led June’s over-the-year job growth with 7,700 jobs, a 6.2 percent increase for the industry and 45 percent of the state economy’s total over-the-year June job growth.

The other services industry shed 2,400 jobs in the largest over-the-year job loss.
