Unemployment rate is lower in every Oklahoma county
Every Oklahoma county and the state's largest metro areas showed improvement in September unemployment rates compared to last year.
The jobless rate fell 0.9 percentage points in the Oklahoma City metro area and 1.3 percent in the Tulsa metro area since September 2017, hitting rates of 2.8 and 3.0 percent, respectively. These rates are an improvement from the August numbers, when unemployment was at 3.2 percent in Oklahoma City and 3.5 percent in Tulsa.
The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission released a report Tuesday showing the September 2018 unemployment rates for all 77 Oklahoma counties ranged from 1.7 percent in Dewey, Grant and Love counties, up to 5.1 percent in Latimer County.
