Nevada jobless rate drops to 10.8 percent in Nov.

LAS VEGAS - Nevada's unemployment rate has dropped to 10.8 percent, which is the lowest it's been in more than three years.

The November numbers released Friday by the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation were well below October's jobless rate of 11.5 percent.

It comes after the state added a seasonally adjusted 9,200 jobs between October and November. That's the biggest month-to-month gain since April 2005.

The unemployment rate in Las Vegas was down to 10.4 percent in November, while Reno's rate was 9.9 percent and Carson City's was 10.3 percent.

Gov. Brian Sandoval says the report is good news, but there's still much work to be done to diversify the state's economy and attract new businesses to Nevada
