Nearly one-quarter of Laconia’s workforce filed for unemployment compensation between March 15 and April 18, according to figures released Thursday by the state Employment Security Department.

The city’s “Covid-19 Affected Unemployment Rate” is 24.57 percent, but that undershoots the actual unemployment rate because it doesn’t include people who were unemployed before March 15 or those who live locally but applied for unemployment compensation out of state.
