Idaho unemployment rate drops to lowest in more than 6 years


BOISE, Idaho — Idaho's unemployment rate fell to 4.1 percent in October.

The Idaho Department of Labor in a statement Friday says that's the lowest unemployment rate in the state in more than six years.

The agency also says last month's drop of four-tenths of a percentage point is the largest one-month change on record for the state.

In all, Idaho added 1,200 new jobs in October.
