The jobless rate continued to improve in February in South Carolina, dipping to 10.2 percent – from 10.5 percent in January – as more than 3,700 workers found jobs since January.

This marks the sixth straight month of improvement, bringing the jobless rate closer to the national level. Nationally, the rate dipped to 8.9 percent for February.

Nearly every industry in the state showed improvements last month, with an estimated increase of 22,500 non-agricultural jobs.

The leisure and hospitality industry led the way, adding 4,600 jobs, followed closely by professional and business services and education and health services.

The construction industry showed its first increase since October, adding 2,500 jobs as the spring building and home selling season gears up.
