West Virginia's rate of unemployment continues to post record lows since January, according to Workforce WV.

The state's rate for May was four-point-six percent.

The record-setting rates have shown consistent improvement during the past five months.

The statistics show that even rural counties with historic unemployment have few people unemployed.

The employment indicator implies a positive economic picture, despite rising gasoline, energy, insurance and product costs, with fewer people collecting unemployment or leaving the area.
