Monroe County leads state in unemployment
(2007-04-24)
(WOUB) - Officials say Monroe County in southeast Ohio had the state's worst unemployment rate last month:9.7%.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says three counties were tied with the state's lowest jobless rate for March. Delaware County in central Ohio, Holmes in northeast Ohio and Mercer in western Ohio all had unemployment of 3.8%.

The county by county numbers were released today, four days after the department reported that the statewide unemployment rate for March was 5.2%, up from an even 5% the month before.
