A.P. Amends Story Figures

By  | 

In an April 1 story about Mississippi's unemployment rate for February, the Associated Press reported erroneously that the January unemployment rate was 5.6 percent.

The rate for January was 6.2 percent.

The story also erroneously reported that the number of Mississippians out of work in February was up by 7,900 when the total unemployed was actually down by that number.
