Lubbock's unemployment rate is lower, thanks mostly to the start of the school year. 

The Texas Workforce Commission reported the local jobless figure for August was 5.1 percent. That is down seven-tenths of a percent from July, and down six-tenths since August 2012. 

Midland continues to have the lowest unemployment rate in the state at 3.2 percent. The highest was McAllen-Edinburg with 10.8 percent unemployment. 

The state's rate sits at about 6.4 percent, well below the national unemployment rate of 7.3 percent.
