Hall County set records in July for labor force and number of employed residents, according to the Georgia Department of Labor.

The labor force hit 104,922 people, or 3,500 higher than this time last year.

Gainesville’s metropolitan statistical area, which includes all of Hall County, added 430 new employed residents in July, pushing its total to an all-time high 101,594. That number has grown by more than 4,500 over the past year. 

Hall did lose 200 jobs in July, dropping to 93,500 but is still up 3,700 for the year.

Also, the county’s July jobless rate is now 3.2 percent, down from 4.1 percent one year ago and the lowest among all metro areas in Georgia.
