(LANSING) – Michigan's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell during the month of April.

According to data released by the Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget, the State's adjusted unemployment rate fell over the month by three-tenths of a percentage point to 4.7 percent, down from March's rate of 5 percent.

Total employment rose by 18,000 in April while the number of unemployed dropped by 17,000.

The Michigan jobless rate in April was two-tenths of a percentage point below the April 2016 rate of 4.9 percent.

Jason Palmer, Director of the Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, says over the last two months, the number of unemployed in Michigan fell by 28,000, pushing the State's jobless rate downward.

Palmer says payroll jobs in Michigan have advanced in three of the first four months of 2017.
