With an unemployment rate of 4.1 percent, Minneapolis-St. Paul, bested Oklahoma City for lowest unemployment rate among large metro areas. The two metro areas were tied for the lowest rate for large cities in August, but the Twin Cities have beat Oklahoma City's unemployment rate for the past two months.
Minneapolis unseated Oklahoma City for the lowest unemployment rate in the nation for the first time in 13 months in May and continued to hold on to the No. 1 jobless rate in June.
The national unemployment rate for October, not seasonally adjusted, was 7 percent, down from 7.5 percent a year earlier.
