ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - There is a new measure of Minnesota's economic health ready for release.
The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development was scheduled Thursday to publish the unemployment rate for January. It's been almost two months since the last checkup showed a 4.6 percent jobless rate.
Minnesota has added jobs faster and seen its unemployment rate fall quicker than the nation at large.
