Unemployment rates keep falling in October in Nevada's metro areas; state rate at 7-year low


CARSON CITY, Nevada — Unemployment rates continue to fall in Nevada's three main metropolitan areas.

The state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation reported this week that Las Vegas' jobless rate ticked down to 6.3 percent in October. The rate fell to 5.6 percent in the Reno area, and was 6.6 percent in Carson City in October.

Regional unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted.

The news comes a week after the agency reported that Nevada's overall jobless rate hit a new seven-year low of 6.6 percent. That rate is seasonally adjusted.

Nevada added a seasonally adjusted 42,000 jobs in the past year, for 3.4 percent growth.
