The state says Nebraska's unemployment rate was unchanged in June, matching the May figure of 4.1 percent.

The Nebraska Labor Department says the June figure a year ago was 4.6 percent. Unemployment in Nebraska remains well under half the national rate, which rose to 9.2 percent in June, compared with 9.5 percent a year ago.

Three industry sectors showed growth last month in Nebraska: trade, transportation and utilities; manufacturing; and mining and construction.
