Ohio's unemployment rate fell to all-time low of 3.3% in July.

Ohio’s economy posted another record low unemployment rate in July while breaking another mark that has stood for 23 years.

The unemployment rate fell to 3.3% last month, breaking the mark for the lowest unemployment rate in data going back to 1976, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services reported Friday.

It was the fourth straight record low since the state tied the old record low of 3.8% in March, and six months in a row that the state’s rate has been below 4%. The rate was 3.4% in June.

The state’s unemplolyment rate peaked at 16.4% in April 2020 when the economy was largely shut down during the early days of the pandemic.
