S.C. Unemployment improves, falling to 7.9% in September

The Palmetto State's unemployment rate has reached a five year low at 7.9%.

The news of September's rate was delayed because of the 16-day federal shutdown, which also noted a similar five-year low, reaching 7.2% nationally in September. The report was originally due to be issued on October 22.

Unemployment data for counties is still pending; we'll be sure to update you.
