ALBANY – Unemployment rates in Hudson Valley/Catskills counties in April fell over one year ago levels.

Rockland County had the lowest rate this April at 5.8 percent while Sullivan County had the highest rate, at 8.9 percent, a full point lower than its 9.9 percent rate in March.

State labor analyst John Nelson said those statistics are encouraging.
