  • Hoosier unemployment drops in November

The unemployment rate for Stanislaus County stayed steady in November, remaining unchanged from the month prior, but still below the year-ago estimate, according to the latest report from the Employment Development Department.

Five out of the nine counties in this region had the 10 best unemployment rates in the state, led by Mercer County (first, 2.7 percent), Putnam County (third, 3 percent), Auglaize County (sixth, 3.1 percent), Hancock County (seventh, 3.1 percent) and Van Wert (10th, 3.4).

St. Lawrence County tied with Oswego County for the fourth highest unemployment rate last month at 6.4 percent. Tallapoosa County also saw a small increase rising from 3.4% in October to 3.5% in the month of November.

Counties with an unemployment rate at or below four percent included Monroe (4.0%), Hampshire (3.7%), Morgan (3.6%), Berkeley (3.5%), Monongalia, Pendleton and Doddridge (3.4%), and Jefferson (3.0%).

Unemployment rates declined in 63 of Ohio's 88 counties in November, the state reported. The county had not posted a rate of over-the-year job growth below 3 percent in over 5 years.

"While unemployment rates remain near historically low levels in many counties, there are still areas that need our assistance", Phillips said. Total private employment stands at 2,690,600 and is 13,700 above the November 2016 peak.




Some may do a double take looking at November's employment numbers for Yakima County.
