Feds Revise Unemployment Numbers From September Sun, 21 Nov 2021 06:02:25 EST
The federal government has corrected Michigan's unemployment rate, putting it above the U.S. average.
The September jobless figure is now 6.3 percent. It had previously been at 4.6 percent, below the national rate.
October's number, also released , dipped to 6.1 percent.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says the problem stems from inputs into the model for the Detroit-Warren-Dearborn area for January, which produced distortions in some of the benchmark factors.
State officials reportedly notified the agency of the issue back in May.
