Unemployment rate decreases to 5.2 percent

Howard County's unemployment rate declined from 5.4 percent in August to 5.2 percent in September, while the state's rate increased from 6.6 percent to 6.7 percent.

Howard's unemployment rate in September 1991 was 4.3 percent.

A report from the state Department of Economic and Employment Development (DEED) shows that 5,022 people in Howard were unemployed and looking for a job, out of a civilian labor force of 95,977 in September.

The Baltimore region's jobless rate remained at 7.6 percent, compared with 6.4 percent one year ago.

"Although we are experiencing a slight increase in unemployment, other signs show that Maryland's economy is improving in certain areas," said DEED Secretary Mark L. Wasserman. "Housing permits have increased significantly, while continued unemployment claims showed modest improvement."

The national unemployment rate declined slightly from 7.3 percent to 7.2 percent.
