The Associated Press

Nebraska’s unemployment rate for August of 2.2% was the nation’s lowest and the lowest on record for the state, a state agency reported last Friday.

The Nebraska Department of Labor said the August rate was down slightly from July’s rate of 2.3%.

The 2.2% is the lowest since Nebraska began keeping records of unemployment data in 1976.

The total for nonfarm employment in August stood at 1.019 million.

The state’s unemployment rate is the lowest in the nation, ahead of number two Utah’s 2.6% rate. The U.S. unemployment rate for August was 5.2%.
