In september jobs rate unchanged Washington a the nation s jobs picture remained virtually unchanged in september with a thin improvement in the unemployment rate countered by declines in total employment and the number of people actively trying to find work the labor departments last monthly report before the nov. 2 election showed that the official jobless rate edged downward one tenth of a percentage Point to 7.8 per cent of the work Force from the August totals. At the same time total employment stood at 87 8 million in september Down 162. 000 from the month before. And the total civilian labor Force meaning persons with jobs Pius those seeking them was put at 95,203,000, Down 280,000 from August. The total employment and labor Force figures thus detracted from whatever cheer might otherwise be derived from the marginal improvement in the unemployment rate. Moreover the department attributed the decline in the jobless rate in part to a drop in the figures for unemployed teenagers while the rate for adult men actually went up slightly. Labor department analysts said the changes in any Case. Were not Large enough to have statistical significance a a we consider it about unchanged with both unemployment and employment on a plateau a said one official. The Job figures were the latest in a string of statistics indicating stagnant economic performance.
