West Virginia's unemployment rate inched down in April to 6 percent.

The seasonally adjusted rate is down one-tenth of a percentage point from March.

WorkForce West Virginia reported Wednesday that the number of unemployed state residents fell by 100 in April to a total of 48,400 statewide.

The West Virginia rate is less than the national rate of 6.3 percent.

Employment gains in West Virginia were recorded in mining and logging, manufacturing, trade, transportation and utilities, professional and business services, educational and health services, leisure and hospitality and government. They were offset by declines in construction, information services and the financial sector.
