While unemployment continued to decline in April, job creation was a mixed bag in South Florida, according to data released by the state on Friday.

Florida’s economy is in an expansion mode that is in its late phases, said Sean Snaith, economist for the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

“It’s hard to sustain high rates of job growth. Florida is still adding jobs more rapidly than the U.S. economy, but our lead is narrowing,” he said.

Broward County’s jobless rate fell to 3.2 percent compared with 3.7 percent in April 2017. Meanwhile, the county added 12,800 jobs, an increase of 1.5 percent over the year. That was the most jobs added in the tricounty region.
