Georgia jobless rate improves

ATLANTA – The Georgia Department of Labor announced today that Georgia’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dipped to 8.4 percent in March, the lowest rate since December 2008. The rate was down two-tenths of a percentage point from 8.6 percent in February and seven-tenths of a percentage point from 9.1 percent in March a year ago.

The rate declined because of an increase in the number of jobs and fewer new layoffs.
