Looking better!

Unemployment rates fell in 45 states and the District of Columbia in November, reflecting a sharp drop in the national jobless rate despite Superstorm Sandy and the budget standoff in Washington.

Unemployment was unchanged in five states, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Friday.

The jobless rate fell dramatically in several states, with the largest declines in Louisiana and Nevada. The rate dropped to 5.8% from 6.6% in Louisiana and to 10.8% from 11.5% in Nevada.

Nevada continued to have the highest unemployment rate at 10.8%, followed by Rhode Island at 10.4%. North Dakota, which is making the most of an oil boom, continued to have the lowest rate at 3.1%
