MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Local unemployment rates across Wisconsin are dropping.
The latest report from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development released Wednesday shows that unemployment rates in every major city dropped between July and August.
Unemployment also went down in all but three Wisconsin counties. Rates increased only in Florence, Grant and Menominee counties.
The preliminary unemployment rates for local areas are not seasonally adjusted, subject to significant revision, and not directly comparable with the statewide figures.
Unemployment ranged from a low of 5 percent in Dane County to a high of 21.9 percent in Menominee County.
Racine had the highest unemployment rate of any city at 12.1 percent, followed by Beloit at 11.8 percent.
The statewide rate for August was 7.5 percent.
