JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - State labor officials say Alaska’s unemployment rate in March was 6.6 percent.

That’s up a tenth of a percentage point from February.

The national umemployment rate for March was 6.7 percent.

Labor officials that the national rate continues to creep downward, and it’s becoming increasing evident that it will drop below Alaska’s rate after a long stretch of being higher.

Officials said in a release that this says more about the U.S. economy’s continuing recovery than about any fundamental change in Alaska.
