Unemployment rates were lower in December than a year earlier in 290 of the 372

metropolitan areas, higher in 68 areas, and unchanged in 14 areas, the U.S.

Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Seven areas recorded jobless rates

of at least 15.0 percent, while 33 areas registered rates of less than 5.0

percent. Two hundred eighty-three metropolitan areas reported over-the-year

increases in nonfarm payroll employment, 83 reported decreases, and 6 had no

change. The national unemployment rate in December was 7.6 percent, not

seasonally adjusted, down from 8.3 percent a year earlier.
