Rhode Island Still Has Highest Unemployment Rate
Rhode Island still has the highest unemployment rate in the country, but now it shares that title with California. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Rhode Island and California tied for January unemployment with a rate of 9.8 percent. Nevada was close with 9.7 percent.
The rates are based on telephone surveys and may not be 100 percent accurate. Unemployment statistics are frequently revised when employer-driven data is collected.
