Ohio unemployment rate

Posted: Updated:

The latest monthly jobs data shows Ohio's unemployment rate continuing to stay below the national number. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services said the state's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for February was 7% which is unchanged from January.

Officials say the good news is the total number of unemployed is significantly down from a year ago. The state's leaders have said Ohio's economy and its job market are getting stronger, though the process is slow. Ohio's unemployment rate has remained about a percentage point below the U.S. Rate, which was 7.7% in February.
