Jobless rates unchanged here, up in other areas of Wisconsin

Unemployment levels remained unchanged in Langlade County between January and February, but were up in most cities and counties.

The state Department of Workforce Development reported that preliminary unemployment rates increased in 20 of the 32 largest cities and in 52 of 72 counties. The department says it is not unusual to see an increase in the local unemployment rates in the winter months because the numbers are not adjusted for seasonal variances.

Last year between January and February nearly all cities and counties saw a spike in unemployment rates as well.
