Williams Co. Unemployment Rate Better Than Most

Good news on the jobs front for Williams County: its 5.1 per­cent unem­ploy­ment rate in March was the best in the four-county area, though all four coun­ties saw reduc­tions in job­less­ness. Williams’ rate is a full per­cent­age point lower than in March 2014, when it stood at 6.1 per­cent. Williams County ranks in the best one-third of all Ohio coun­ties and matches the state-wide aver­age unem­ploy­ment rate. It’s a far cry from 2010 when Williams topped out at 16 percent.
