(2008-03-25)
(WOUB) - State officials say unemployment was at
double-digit levels last month in three southern Ohio counties.

The Department of Job and Family Services says Morgan County had
the state's highest rate for February, 11.1 percent.

Then came Meigs County with 10.7 percent joblessness, followed by Pike County at 10.3.

Delaware County north of Columbus had the lowest unemployment rate in Ohio during February: 4.0 percent.

Officials announced last Friday that the statewide unemployment rate was 5.3 percent last month, down from January's 5.5.
