    Kentucky unemployment dropped again in February [Opinion: The Arena]
    Print this page

    New data released today by the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics show Kentucky's unemployment rate falling another tenth of a percent in February to 8.7%. 

    These are preliminary numbers and will be revised in several weeks, as is the norm for statistical data about the unemployment rate.

    The new unemployment data is consistent with other measures released earlier this week. Those data showed that Kentuckians' per capita income rose in the fourth quarter of 2011 and that the forward-looking "leading index" forecast more robust economic improvement ahead than the state has experienced since the mid-1990's.

    --------------'s The Arena section features opinions from active participants in the city's politics. Their viewpoints are not those of (a website is an inanimate object and, as such, has no opinions).
