Ohio’s unemployment rate dropped four-tenths of a percentage point in February, continuing the downward trend in 2014.
The state’s jobless rate stood at 6.5 percent during the month, down from 6.9 percent in January and 7.2 percent in December of 2013. The current jobless rate is an improvement over the same period in 2013 when 7.3 percent of eligible Ohio residents were searching for work.
