ATLANTA -- A new report shows that Georgia's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate has fallen to 9.2 percent.
State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler said the new jobless rate fell from 10.2 percent in October, which is the largest one-month decline since 1977.
Georgia's 9.2 percent rate compares to 10.4 percent in November 2010.
Officials said the state's unemployment rate declined because of an increase in jobs. In additional to retail, the state also saw growth in financial and business services, and education and health care.
Among the state's cities, metro Dalton had the highest rate at 11.8 percent. Metro Athens had the lowest at 6.9 percent.
Henry County's unemployment rate was 10 percent in November 2011.
