President Biden’s Economic Agenda Ushers in Record Low State Unemployment Rates

The White House

Across the country, local news outlets are reporting on how the historic Biden economic recovery has led to another consecutive month of historic job growth and record low unemployment in several states.

In September, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics: 17 states had unemployment rates at or below 3 percent.

  • 11 states and the District of Columbia either set new records or matched records for their lowest unemployment rates since the beginning of the state data series in 1976.
  • All 50 States and the District of Columbia had their unemployment rate decrease or remain unchanged from a year earlier.

This data is further proof that President Biden’s economic agenda is working, and that the U.S. economy is moving from a historically strong economic recovery to more steady and stable growth.
