FAIRBANKS — Alaska’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.1 percent in October, a dip of 0.4 percent from the previous month.

Alaskans fared better than the nation, which had a rate of 7.9 percent in October, essentially unchanged from September. October marks the 48th consecutive month that the national rate has been higher than Alaska’s.

The Fairbanks-area rate was at 5 percent. The highest unemployment rate was in the Wade Hampton census area at 19.2 percent. The lowest was in Juneau, at 4.3 percent.
