Washington County improves its employment numbers

Chicot Memorial

The jobless rate fell to 11.2 percent in Washington County in November, down from 12.2 percent in October. Analysts believe the rate dropped in part due to an increase in holiday hiring for November. Most other counties across Mississippi also posted declines in November for a statewide jobless average of 7.5 percent, just one-tenth of a percentage point higher than the national rate of 7.4 percent.
