LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan authorities say the state experienced a typical seasonal increase in unemployment in the latest month.

The state Department of Technology, Management & Budget said Thursday that the state’s seasonally unadjusted joblessness rate reached 7.9 percent in June, up from 7.3 percent in May. It was 9.4 percent in June 2013.

The department says June’s unemployment rates ranged from a low of 5.7 percent in the Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids regions to a high of 9.2 percent in populous metropolitan Detroit.

The Detroit-area rate is up from 8 percent in May but down from 10.1 percent in June 2013.
