MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Unemployment rates dropped in most Wisconsin cities and counties in March.

Unemployment was highest in Racine for the month at 13.3 percent. Caledonia had the lowest rate at 3.9 percent.

Menominee County’s unemployment rate ranks highest at 14.6 percent. Dane County was the lowest at 5.1 percent.
