Delaware’s unemployment rate dipped to 5.1-percent in November, down from 5.6-percent in October. Sussex County had the lowest unemployment rate among the three counties in Delaware, at 4.1 percent last month.

The Maryland unemployment rate dropped to 6.8 percent in November, down from 7.7-percent the previous month.
