ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico’s unemployment rate dipped for a second straight month.

The state Department of Workforce Solutions reported Monday that that the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for December was 6.1 percent.

That’s down from 6.4 percent in November and down from 6.6 percent in December 2013.

The department says the state’s economy added 13,500 jobs during the year between December 2014 and December 2013, making it the one of the greatest year-over-year monthly increase since the Great Recession.
