NC jobless data shows 2 months of improvement

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s unemployment rate is continuing a slow improvement, falling in September to 8.3 percent and dropping again to 8.0 percent in October.

The state Commerce Department on Friday reported the unemployment rates for both months after delays related to the federal government shutdown.

North Carolina’s jobs picture remained worse than the nation’s jobless rate, which was 7.3 percent in October.

The state and the country have seen unemployment rates fall through most of this year and the North Carolina rate is more than a percentage point lower than the 9.4 percent recorded a year ago. The trend has come in large part because many people stopped looking for a job.
