The state lost 1,600 net jobs in February, mostly in industries that can be affected by weather, the state Department of Labor reported Thursday. In February total employment rose by 17,000, while the number of people who were unemployed also rose by 7,000.

"After 17 years, IL jobs have finally regained their September 2000 peak", Employment Security Director Jeff Mays said in a news release.

The lowest jobless rate in the state was in Mercer County at 3.9 percent.

Three of the state's labor market areas posted gains for the month, led by New Haven, which added 1,700 jobs.

Gioia said the reason for the unemployment rate increase was a growing labor force. The biggest job losses came in state government and financial activities.

"However, when compared to this time a year ago, total nonfarm employment changed little", he added.
