Springfield Jobless Rate Dips, Decatur's Soars


Springfield’s jobless rate is down from a year ago. 

 

Latest numbers from the State Department of Employment Security put local unemployment at 6.5% in May, down from 6.8% one year earlier.  Springfield has the third-lowest jobless rate among major metropolitan areas around the state… only Bloomington-Normal and the Quad Cities were lower last month. 

 

The highest metro jobless rate in the state is in Decatur, where layoffs swelled the number last month to 10.3%.
