JUNEAU, Alaska — Alaska finished 2015 with an unemployment rate of 6.5 percent.

The state labor department says the December seasonally adjusted rate compares to 6.4 percent in November. The unemployment rate in December 2014 was 6.4 percent.

The department, in a release, says the seasonally adjusted rate for 2015 showed no clear trend, which it said is consistent with other economic indicators suggesting the economy last year was relatively flat.

Nationally, the unemployment rate last month was 5 percent.
