Alabama's unemployment rate has dropped for the first time in more than two years.
The state Department of Industrial Relations announced Friday that Alabama's rate declined from 10.9 percent in October to 10.5 percent in November.
The last time Alabama saw a drop was in September 2007.
State Industrial Relations Director Tom Surtees said he's glad to see a decrease, but one month is not a trend.
Sumter County's rate was 14.1%. Choctaw County's stood at 12.5%. Both were down from October.
Counties with the lowest unemployment in November were Shelby and Madison at 7.3 percent, Coffee at 7.8 percent, and Pike at 8.2 percent.
Counties with the highest rates were Wilcox at 24.3 percent, Monroe at 21.1 percent, and Dallas at 20.3 percent.
