Revised numbers: Wisconsin lost nearly 22,000 jobs in April, not 24,000


MADISON (WKOW) -- Revised numbers released Thursday by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development show Wisconsin lost a seasonally-adjusted total of 21,900 nonfarm jobs in April, down from the preliminary total of 24,100 jobs lost.

The preliminary numbers are based on a survey of approximately 3.5% of Wisconsin employers so the revised numbers are considered more accurate.

Revised numbers for the first four months of the year show Wisconsin has lost 12,100 jobs so far in 2013.

The preliminary jobs data for May shows growth, with 10,400 jobs created.

The preliminary seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate in May was 7.0%, slightly down from April and unchanged from the jobless rate in May 2012.
