Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A county-by-county breakdown of the jobless rate in Oklahoma shows each of the state's 77 counties experienced a decline in the unemployment rate in November.

The figures from the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission show the lowest unemployment rates were 2.2% in both Ellis and Dewey counties in western Oklahoma followed by 2.4% unemployment in both Beaver and Roger Mills counties.

The highest rates remain in southeastern Oklahoma with 8.9% jobless in Le Flore County and 8.5% in Latimer County.

The commission report that the Oklahoma City metro area unemployment rate stood at 4.5% - down from 4.9% in October. The Tulsa metro unemployment fell by a half percent to 5.1% and the Lawton jobless rate dropped from 7% to 6.4%.
