W.Va. Jobless Rate At 6.2 In September, October

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) a¿¿ West Virginia's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate remained at 6.2 percent in September and October.

WorkForce West Virginia says the number of unemployed residents fell by 100 to 49,400 in September before inching back up 200 to 49,600 in October.

Through October, total state unemployment is down 11,100.
