March Unemployment Rate Down Slightly

We’re making slow but steady progress on our unemployment rate. Montgomery County’s March unemployment rate, just announced, was 5.0 percent. That’s down from 5.1 percent in February. Our unemployment remains well below the national average and shows a nice drop from our January 2010 rate, which spiked to 6.2 percent. We still have a way to go, though, to get back to our November 2007 rate of 2.5 percent.
