The Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the January 2013 seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate for each state. This release was delayed from late February until mid-March, perhaps because the BLS was adjusting the last two years worth of data.
Regardless, California's unemployment rate remains stubbornly steady at 9.8%. Thanks to big improvements by Nevada in January, California is now tied for worst unemployment with Rhode Island.
The BLS will release the February 2013 unemployment data on 29-MAR-2013.
