Ohio's jobless rate inches downward again


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's unemployment rate is continuing to inch downward.

The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services said Friday that the state's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for November was 6.8%. That's down from 6.9% in October and 7.1% in September.

It's the lowest since an identical 6.8% rate in August 2008.

The state has said Ohio's economy and its job market are getting stronger, though the process is slow.

Ohio's unemployment rate has remained about a full percentage point below the U.S. rate.
