State's October unemployment rate down to 4.7 percent

The statewide figures put Nebraska in good company among states with the country's lowest unemployment rates. But she adds not all communities and regions of the state are benefiting equally from this growth.

Nationally, the unemployment rate dropped slightly to 3.9 percent in September from 4.1 percent the month prior.
