MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Unemployment rates dropped in all Wisconsin counties and the 32 largest cities in April.

The state Department of Workforce Development reported the latest figures Wednesday.

Racine had the highest unemployment rate last month at 6.9 percent, which was down from 8 percent in March. The second highest was Beloit at 6.4 percent and Milwaukee at 6.3 percent.

The lowest city unemployment rate was 2.9 percent in Fitchburg, Madison and Sun Prairie.

County unemployment rates ran from a low of 2.9 percent in Dane County to 11.3 percent in Menominee County.

The local unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted and therefore not comparable to the state unemployment rate which was 4.4 percent in April. The national unemployment rate was 5.4 percent.
