Arkansas unemployment has dropped to 6.4 percent, just slightly above the national average.

The Department of Workforce Services said Friday that the state unemployment decreased two-tenths of a percentage point from 6.6 percent in April to 6.4 percent in May.

The state's civilian labor force, which is a sum of employed and unemployed Arkansans, decreased by 7,300 — a result of 4,600 fewer employed and 2,700 fewer unemployed Arkansans, the release states.

The rate has decreased 1.1 percent from May 2013, according to the department.

The national jobless rate remained stable at 6.3 percent in May.
