NY reports 7.5 percent July unemployment


ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York labor officials report the state's unemployment rate remained at 7.5 percent in July, unchanged from the previous month.
The state Department of Labor says the rate dipped in the state outside of New York City from 6.9 percent to 6.8 percent, the lowest level since January 2009.
The rate for New York City remained unchanged at 8.4 percent from June, but 1 percent lower than a year earlier.
The federal government calculates the state rate partly based on a monthly telephone survey of 3,100 households in New York.
