COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's unemployment rate for July is set to be released after job reports for the last two months showed the rate at its lowest level since before the Great Recession.
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services was scheduled to release last month's figures on Friday morning.
The state's social services department previously reported that the seasonally adjusted rate in May and June was 5.5 percent. That was down from 5.7 percent in March and 6.1 percent in April.
The state's unemployment rate has been below the nation's jobless rate, which was 6.2 percent for July.
