NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Unemployment in Louisiana stood at 6.9 percent in September, down from 7.2 percent in August and from 7.7 percent in September 2010, according to seasonally adjusted figures from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The bureau reported Louisiana added 14,100 nonfarm jobs during September.

In neighboring Mississippi, the September unemployment rate was 10.6 percent, up from 10.4 percent in August and 10.1 percent in September 2010.


In its report released Friday, the bureau said unemployment fell in 25 states in September and rose in 14, with no changes in 11 states and the District of Columbia.


But 38 states — including Louisiana — posted declines in unemployment from the same period a year ago.


Nevada continued to report the highest unemployment rate among the states, 13.4 percent in September.
