On Friday, the Agency for Workforce Innovation announced that Florida's unemployment rate had dropped to 11.5 percent in February, a reduction of .4 percent from the previous month. This rate represents the lowest rate since July of 2010. More than 22,000 jobs were added in February, a total increase of more than 32,000 jobs as compared to February 2010. Orlando led the state in job creation, and the leading job category was professional and business services, followed by education and health services. Tempering the improved outlook is the fact that the labor force narrowed by nearly 13,000 workers. Florida's unemployment rate remains above the national unemployment rate of 8.9 percent, as measured by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
