Ohio unemployment remains flat in March

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s unemployment rate was unchanged in March, according to data released Friday.

The seasonally adjusted rate of 7.1 percent was the same as the revised February rate and up just slightly from 7 percent in January, according to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The static numbers so far this year followed months of small, steady unemployment declines in 2012.

Ohio’s unemployment rate remains below the national rate, which was 7.6 percent in March.

Ohio Department of Job and Family Services spokesman Ben Johnson called the recent unemployment numbers the “inherent fluctuation in a slow recovery.” However, he said, “the general trend of the Ohio economy is positive.”
