The Bureau of Labor Statistics has archived record lows and highs by state, and 2018 proved to break the record low in 19 states. 7 of those states broke their record low in December 2018. The lowest unemployment rate was 2.0% in Hawaii for the month of May. These state unemployment rates reflect the national unemployment levels we saw in 2018, which in September reached the lowest point since 1969.
