That is largely unchanged from November's figures. The national unemployment rate remained at 5 percent.

Labor and Industry Commissioner Pam Bucy says state residents can look forward to a positive outlook for the economy in the new year.

The report says more construction jobs than usual were added in December, and fewer retail jobs than usual.
