Idaho unemployment falls to 6.1%

Unemployment in Idaho dropped to 6.1 percent in November, posting the largest one-month decline on record; it was 6.7 percent in October. The Idaho Department of Labor reports that the drop in jobless numbers in Idaho was twice the national drop; the national seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped from 7.3 percent to 7 percent. And all 44 of Idaho’s counties saw unemployment drop in November.
