percent, according to the Alabama Department of Labor.

The unemployment rate for December was down from November’s rate of 6.2 percent, and below December 2012’s rate of 6.8 percent. December’s rate represents 129,743 unemployed persons, dipping from 132,301 in November and 145,613 in December 2012.

“While we are certainly pleased to announce that our unemployment rate is at a five year low, we know that we are not in a perfect situation, employment wise,” said Alabama Department of Labor Commissioner Tom Surtees. “There are still more than 120,000 Alabamians who want a job, and we must focus our efforts on helping those people find work.”

The Birmingham-Hoover metro’s unemployment rate was 5 percent for December, up from 4.9 percent the prior month but down from 5.7 percent the previous year.
