MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Labor says the state’s unemployment rate was 3.4 percent in February, unchanged since January.

Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan says Vermont continues to be in a period of economic growth, with many educational and job programs to help people prepare for work.

The February rate of 3.4 percent was compared to 3.7 percent in February 2015.

Unemployment in Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 2.6 percent in Burlington to 7.5 percent in Derby.
