Presenting The Most Unemployed Cities In Every State

 But this is because more people are giving up searching for a job, and rates only include people actively looking for work.

According to a brand new BLS employment report, unemployment rates were lower in 325 out of 372 metropolitan areas, higher in 40 areas and unchanged in 7 areas compared to the same time last year.

El Centro, Calif., and Yuma, Ariz., recorded the highest unemployment rates at 29.9 percent — both cities have a large immigrant and migrant farm worker population.

The largest unemployment rate drop (-3.0 percent) took place in Pascagoula, Miss. where the state's workforce shrunk by 1.8 percent compared to last year.

The BLS' data isn't adjusted for seasonal factors, such as summer hiring.
