The most recent jobless numbers are breaking records. April’s unemployment rate of 3.9 percent was the lowest economists have seen since 2000. While the number is a cause for celebration, it’s not the only number that points to the overall health of the economy.

In addition to the low unemployment rate, the economy also added 164,000 jobs in April. The economy has added jobs every month since October 2010 when United States was just beginning to recover from the Great Recession. In March, only 135,000 jobs were added, down significantly from February’s 324,000 added jobs. Over the last three months, an average of 208,000 jobs have been added, another positive sign for the economy.

However, the unemployment rates for different races vary wildly. Whites had an unemployment rate in April of 3.6 percent, while the rate for Hispanics was 4.8 percent, and for African-Americans was 6.6 percent, although it was at its lowest point since 1992.

The low unemployment rate is of course a good sign for the economy, even if the labor force dropped by 236,000 workers in April. While it appears there are plenty of jobs for anyone looking for one, workers are not seeing substantial increases in their paychecks.

Worker wages were up 2.6 percent from the same time last year. But the annual inflation rate dampened those gains by increasing 2 percent. Additionally, the tax cuts passed by Congress last year have not had the impact legislators and the Trump Administration predicted they would once enacted. The GDP during the first three months of 2018 grew just 2.3 percent, down from 2.9 percent in the previous quarter.

Despite those negative notes, the economy continues to plow forward. The low unemployment rate and continual job growth are both reasons to think the overall economy in 2018 is off to a strong start.
