Unemployment rates by state have fallen across the board, according to the latest government data.

The change in unemployment between October of last year and the same month this year was statistically significant in 27 states, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And in each of those states unemployment fell.

Rates from October 2013 to October 2014 fell by as little as 0.7 points (to 6 percent unemployment) in Florida to as much as a 2.5-percentage-point decline in Illinois (to 6.6 percent unemployment).

Thirty-five states also saw statistically significant changes in the size of their labor force over the year, with each and every one seeing job growth.

The news may not be all positive, though. The job growth in those 35 states is only good news if it outpaced the growth of the population interested in and able to work, data which the federal government did not provide.
