Following a national trend, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate among Latinos dropped in December, according to statistics released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The unemployment rate for Latinos dropped from 11.4 percent in November to 11 percent last month, a bigger drop than the national average, which fell from a revised 8.7 percent to 8.5 percent. The overall unemployment drop was better than expected by some analysts as the country added 212,000 private-sector jobs. Those jobs replaced more than 3 million of the 4.2 million private-sector jobs lost the past 13 months.
