One statistical area is located in the region – the La Crosse-Onalaska area. There, unemployment fell 0.3 percent to 2.5 percent. That rate puts them tied with Madison for the lowest unemployment rate of any MSA. 

Overall, the state’s cities and counties had a positive month, as unemployment rates declined or went unchanged in all 35 major cities and all 72 counties.
