WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Unemployment rates fell in a majority of U.S. cities in July, despite the weak economy that is producing few jobs.
The Labor Department says unemployment rates dropped in 193 large metro areas, increased in 118 and were flat in 61.
In July, the U.S. economy added 117,000 net jobs and the national unemployment rate fell to 9.1 percent.
