State of Wyoming Demographics
Wyoming is in the Mountain-Plains region of the United States. Wyoming’s economic framework is different than that of the U.S. and many other states. Wyoming’s economic foundation is rooted in three sectors: energy, tourism and agriculture. Consequently, Wyoming’s economic circumstances fluctuate with mineral prices. Wyoming has aggressively pursued technology as a target industry that may be mentioned in the same breath as Wyoming’s signature industries in the near future.

The latest employment scorecard for the State of Wyoming for August 2016 to August 2017 is listed below, based on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Wyoming has an employment scorecard that is hard to get a handle on. On the one hand, the unemployment rate fell by 1.2 percent, a big number, down to 4.0 percent. On the other hand, the labor force participation rate, although still strong at 65.4 percent, fell a troubling 1.5 percent, along with the overall labor force falling 2.49 percent, a concerning figure. It could be possible that the declining unemployment rate reflects people leaving the labor force altogether.
