Georgia's unemployment rate stood at 3.4% last month, tying a record set nearly 20 years ago, state Commissioner of Labor Mark Butler reported Thursday.
The Peach State also set new highs for jobs and employment in October. Georgia added 5,400 jobs last month, up 72,500 from October of last year, pushing the total to a record 4.64 million jobs.
The number of employed Georgians climbed by 12,963, increasing the number of employed to a record 4.95 million.
Meanwhile, the number of unemployed fell to less than 175,000 - the lowest total in more than 18 years.
Georgia unemployment was as high as 10.6 percent in 2010 due to impacts from the Great Recession. The number has been falling steadily since the peak.
Three job sectors added at least 2,000 jobs last month: leisure/hospitality with an additional 4,400 jobs, education health with an addition of 3,400, and trade/transportation/utilities, which added 2,100 jobs.
