Central Ohio Jobless Rates Declined In September
State officials say the unemployment rate in the Columbus area fell four tenths of a point from September to 6.1 percent last month.
That rate is the lowest among Ohio's major metropolitan areas. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says the unemployment rate fell in 74 of the state's 88 counties last month. Those include Delaware, Union, Franklin, Fairfield, Licking, Pickaway and Madison counties in central Ohio.
