LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan’s seasonally adjusted unemployment is little changed in the latest monthly report, standing at 7.7 percent.

The Department of Technology, Management & Budget said Thursday that the statewide unadjusted jobless rate for December was down 0.1 percentage points from November’s 7.8 percent. The rate has fallen 1.2 percentage points from December 2012’s 8.9 percent.

The department says December unemployment rates ranged from a low of 5.2 percent in the Ann Arbor region to a high of 12.6 percent in the northeastern Lower Peninsula. It says the rate was 8 percent in the populous Detroit area.

The state says the increases reflect fairly typical seasonal employment changes.
