The Georgia Department of Labor on Thursday announced the latest rate, which is the seasonally adjusted jobless rate for October. It is down from 6.8 percent a year ago.

State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler said in a statement that an increase of 29,000 jobs helped push the state's unemployment rate to its lowest level in seven-and-a-half years.
