Posted By on Thu, Apr 5, 2012 at 11:33 AM

Some good news for your Thursday morning from the N.C. Department of Commerce's Labor and Economic Analysis Division.

Unemployment rates fell in 84 of North Carolina's 100 counties in February. The Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill area's rate was 10 percent, a 1.4 percent decrease over 12 months.

Said Commerce Deputy Secretary Dale Carroll in the press release:

"A majority of North Carolina's counties have lower unemployment rates compared to last year. While the over-the-year numbers are positive, we must continue our focus on job growth across the state. We have employment service offices statewide to assist custom- ers with job search opportunities and other workforce related programs."
