POSTED:



Hawaii’s unemployment rate averaged 6.6 percent in 2010, the seventh lowest rate in the country, according to a report released today.


The rate for Hawaii was down from 6.8 percent in 2009 but up from 4.1 percent in 2008, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported.


The BLS report included revisions to the monthly unemployment data for 2010. Hawaii’s jobless rate was higher in five months and lower in three months than originally reported. It was unrevised in four months.


One of the downward changes was for December, in which the BLS revised the unemployment rate to 6.3 percent from the 6.4 percent reported last month.
