FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet says the state's October figure fell from 9.7 percent the previous month and 10.2 percent for October 2010.
Office of Employment and Training research and statistics director Ron Crouch, says jobs increased in October for the first time since July, including the highest level of non-farm employment since December 2008.
The agency says six of the 11 leading non-farm job sectors reported an employment increase in October, while four declined, and one remained the same.
The greatest increase was in manufacturing with 2,900 more jobs, while the largest loss was 600 jobs in the professional and business services sector.
