Metro Hinesville unemployment down in November

POSTED: January 22, 2008 5:03 a.m.
ATLANTA — The Georgia Department of Labor has reported the unemployment rate in the metro Hinesville area declined to 4.2 percent in November, down seven-tenths of one percent from 4.9 percent in October.
Meanwhile, the state's unemployment rate declined to 4.2 percent in November, down one-half of one percent from 4.7 percent in October and two-tenths of one percent from 4.4 percent in November of 2006.
The current state rate is three-tenths of one percent lower than the U.S. unadjusted rate of 4.5 percent.
The state's rate decreased in November because the number of people unemployed declined by 21,675, due, in part, to temporary holiday hiring in the retail trade industry.            
From October to November, preliminary data show Georgia added 12,600 payroll jobs. In metro Hinesville, the number of jobs was up 100, or one-half of one percent, from 19,000 to 19,100.
