Illinois Jobless Rate Dips In May

Illinois’s jobless rate dropped slightly in May compared to April, but the rate remains higher than a year ago. 


The statewide unemployment rate fell to 9.1% in May, down two-tenths from a month earlier.  But it was below 9 percent in May of 2012. 


State officials say Illinois businesses added nearly 12,000 jobs last month… and they hope that indicates a trend toward more job creation.
