NCFL's unemployment rate drops further in October
North Central Florida's unemployment rate – already at a historic low – has dropped even further in October.
Numbers released by the state Friday show the jobless rate dipping slightly in almost every county in the North Central Florida region. At 2.7 percent, Alachua County enjoyed the lowest rate in North Central Florida.
The numbers were lower despite the fact the size of the labor force remained steady. Gilchrist and Union counties were the only ones to rise.
