The jobless rate in communities throughout Greater Nashua ranged from 4.8 percent in Merrimack to 5.1 percent in Hudson last month, according to the state, compared to the statewide rate of 4.4 percent.

All these were well below the national unemployment rate of 6.2 percent.

The jobless rate has declined somewhat this year, falling from a seasonally adjusted rate of 5.1 percent statewide, as signs of an economic recovery grow.

The highest jobless rate in New Hampshire is the area around Berlin in Coos County, which had a 6.8 percent unemployment rate in July.

About 30 percent of the employed people in all of New Hampshire – about 220,000 of them –live in Hillsborough County, according to state figures.
