OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma’s unemployment rate held steady in September at 3.2%.
The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission reported on Friday that the jobless rate was unchanged from August and below the national unemployment rate of 3.5%.
The commission reports an increase of 1,900 jobs in the education and health services sector as well as a gain of 900 jobs in trade, transportation, and utilities.

The commission reports a total increase of more than 5,300 with jobs while the number of unemployed rose by nearly 600.
Oklahoma’s jobless rate has remained unchanged at 3.2% since May.
