While the state's unemployment rate went down to end 2012, the same can't be said about Summit County.
According to the latest figures from Job and Family Services, The jobless rate for December stood at 6.2-percent for the county, which is up from November's number, at an even 6-percent.
In the state rankings, Summit is tied for the 26th lowest in the state.
JFS also tracks rates in Akron and Cuyahoga Falls, with Akron's rate inching back up as well, to 6.8-percent. In the falls, it still increased, but only to 5.9-percent.
State officials say the localized numbers fluctuate more because the rates are not seasonally adjusted, like the state's rate is. Ohio's unemployment in December fell to 6.6-percent. That figure is the lowest in four years, since the recession began.
