ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska's unemployment rate was 6.8 percent last month.

State labor officials say in a web posting that remains unchanged from August.

However, officials said it is higher than the 5.9 national unemployment rate.

The non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 5.9 percent, which was lower than the 6.2 percent in August.

Officials said September traditionally has the lowest unadjusted rate as school starts back up and tourism hasn't fully leveled off.
