MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Labor says the state’s unemployment rate dropped one-tenth-of-one percent in March to 3.3 percent.

The March rate compares with a rate of 3.4 percent in February and 3.7 percent in March 2015.

The unemployment rates in Vermont’s 17 labor markets range from a low of 2.6 percent in the Burlington-South Burlington area to a high of 6.9 percent in Derby.

The state says the rate in the Burlington-South Burlington reporting area is the lowest in the country for all metropolitan areas.

Vermont Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan says the state’s economy is continuing to add jobs and it’s a good time for people find jobs and new careers.
