Nebraska's preliminary May jobless rate 3.6 pct, down from adjusted April rate of 3.7 pct


LINCOLN, Nebraska — A newly released report says Nebraska's preliminary unemployment rate was 3.6 percent in May.

That's a tenth of a point below the revised April rate of 3.7 percent. April's preliminary rate also was 3.6 percent.

The Nebraska Labor Department said in the report released Friday that the preliminary May rate is four-tenths of a point below the revised rate of 4 percent in May 2013.

The new Nebraska figure remained well below the preliminary national unemployment rate of 6.3 percent in May, which matched the revised April figure.
