ST. PAUL, Minn. - The latest snapshot of unemployment in Minnesota is on its way.

Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development officials are scheduled to release statistics Thursday describing job gains and losses in various sectors for November. The state has seen a net gain in jobs over the last year. An updated unemployment rate is part of the report.

The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate has remained well below the national average. Federal statistics released a couple of weeks ago showed the national jobless rate for November was 7.7 percent.

For October, the state's seasonally adjusted jobless rate was 5.8 percent.
