Oklahoma Unemployment Rate Down

KSCB News - March 11, 2010 12:00 am

Oklahoma’s jobless rate declined to 6.7

percent in January.

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission reported Wednesday

that Oklahoma’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell from 6.8

percent in December.

Oklahoma’s rate has either remained the same or improved

slightly since peaking at 6.9 percent in August.

The rate still trails the January 2009 rate of 5 percent, but

it’s 3 percentage points better than the current national rate of

9.7 percent.

The trade, transportation and utilities sector saw the most

growth, with a net increase of 1,000 jobs fueled by increases in

retail trade jobs.
