MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s economic recovery from the Great Recession has been led by Chittenden County, but other parts of the state are now starting to see signs of economic life as well.

That’s the word from the Montpelier-based Public Assets Institute in its latest monthly analysis of new jobs numbers posted by the state.

Non-seasonally adjusted numbers for June showed the unemployment rate dropping by half of a percentage point from June of 2014 to last month in the Burlington-South Burlington labor market area.

That rate of decline was exceeded in Barre-Montpelier, Brattleboro, Derby, Middlebury, Newbury, Northfield-Waitsfield, Randolph, Rutland and St. Johnsbury.

The state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for June was 3.6 percent.
