SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio region’s unemployment rate came in at 4.6 percent for October, a slight drop from September’s 4.7 percent.

The dip, reported by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, was the second consecutive monthly decline, as employers continued to quickly add jobs.

Non-seasonally adjusted regional data showed slight monthly growth in industries including trade, transportation and utilities, professional and business services, and education and health services.

Mining and logging, which includes jobs in oil and gas, shed jobs in the region, as did construction, manufacturing, and leisure and hospitality.

San Antonio’s seasonally adjusted jobless rate was consistent with declines seen in all of the state’s major metropolitan areas, with the McAllen-Edinburg-Mission area showing the largest drop — of 0.3 percentage point.
