Adams County June unemployment figures rose slightly over May which can be attributed in part to a seasonal rise that coincides with the end of the school year.
Adams County still has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state of Illinois at 6.7%. Brown County (4.8%) and Woodford County (6.6%) are the only two counties out of 102 Illinois counties that have lower rates.
The City of Quincy’s June unemployment rate is 7.2% which is up 0.1% over a year ago in June.
