State unemployment data illustrates that Dennis is among the worst in the county when it comes to the portion of our work eligible residents out of work. Only Provincetown, Truro and Wellfleet have higher unemployment rates.
Looking at the 12 month running average, Dennis fares slightly better with a 7.6% unemployment rate. We only trail the county by one percentage point on an annual basis, but by 1.6% for the month of March.
The data clearly illustrates the seasonal nature of our local economy.
