After decreasing for two consecutive months, the unemployment rate in Marion County climbed eight-tenths of a percent in November, but still remains below the statewide average. That’s according to data released this past week by Iowa Workforce Development, which reports Marion County’s unemployment at 6.0 percent last month, up from 5.2 percent in October. Iowa’s statewide average for the month of November was up slightly at 6.7 percent, and the national average dropped slightly to 10.0 percent.
