by

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates were steady in most of the state's 17 major labor markets in February. The Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget says total employment levels were up in every region, and compared to 2012, the jobless rate fell in every market.  Compared to a year ago, the jobless rate in the Battle Creek area dropped from 8.1% to 7.3%, and the Kalamazoo area saw a drop from 8.3% to 6.7%, while Benton Harbor's rate fell from 10.3% to 9.7%.  Compared to January, the largest drop in unemployment was in the Detroit-Warren-Livonia area at 1.1%.  The rate went up 0.5% in Northeast Lower Michigan.
