Hawaii seasonally adjusted unemployment rate falls

HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate has fallen to 6.3 percent.

The Hawaii State Department of Labor and Industrial Relations says April's unemployment rate was down from 6.4 percent in March.

Nationally, last month's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 8.1 percent, down from 8.2 percent in March.

In April over March, all Hawaii's counties experienced declines in unemployment rates, which are not seasonally adjusted.

April marks the third consecutive month of job count growth.
