The slight decrease in unemployment was largely due to unemployed individuals dropping out of the labor force, according to Research & Planning.

From June to July, unemployment rates fell in every county. Unemployment often decreases in July as employment grows in leisure & hospitality, construction, and other sectors.

Research & Planning has scheduled the August unemployment news release for September 20th.
