Unemployment was down in both Solano and Napa counties in September, and both were below the state's rate of 4.6 percent, the state Employment Development Department announced this week.

Solano County's unemployment rate was 4.5 in September, down from August's 4.8 percent and below the year-ago estimate of 5.1 percent. This compares with a 4.4 percent national unemployment rate.

Napa's September unemployment rate was 3.2, down from August's 3.6 percent and below the year-ago estimate of 4.6 percent.

Solano County gained 3,700 jobs over the year and about 2,000 over the month. The largest gains were in education and health services, trade, transportation and utilities, professional and business services and construction, while manufacturing and information lost a little ground during the year.

The largest job gains in Napa County were in manufacturing, professional and business services, and leisure and hospitality, according to EDD statistics."
