Unemployment down in most Wisconsin cities

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Unemployment rates have dropped in all but one of Wisconsin's 12 metro areas.

State figures released yesterday show that Racine was the only area where actual joblessness rose in July. That city's un-adjusted rate rose one-tenth of a point to 7.7-percent. That's the highest in the state.

Madison had the lowest at 4.1-percent.

Unemployment rates also fell in 63 of the 72 counties. They rose in five counties, and stayed the same in four others. Menominee County had the highest unadjusted jobless rate at 18.3-percent. Dane County, which includes Madison, had the lowest rate at 4.0-percent.

22 of the state's 32 largest cities also saw drops in their jobless figures.
