All Kentucky Counties Under 10% Unemployment for First Time Since 2000

None of Kentucky’s 120 counties had an unemployment rate above 10 percent in November.

State officials say it is the first time since October 2000 that none of the state’s counties had a double-digit unemployment rate.

Woodford County had the lowest unemployment rate in the state at 2.5 percent. Magoffin County had the state’s highest unemployment rate at 9.9 percent.

Kentucky’s statewide unemployment rate is seasonally adjusted to account for those changes. But the county unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted because the sample sizes are too small.
