Although more than half of the Fourth Federal Reserve District's counties posted unemployment rates at or below the national average in October, many others continued to exceed it, one by as much as 8.8 percentage points (Knox County, Kentucky). Morgan County recorded Ohio's highest jobless rate (11.6%), while Franklin and Delaware counties shared the state's lowest posting (2.7%).
