ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decline of unemployment in Southwest Florida at 6.7 percent, which is down by 2.5 percent points since a peak of 10 percent in October 2009 based on statistics from Employ Florida. It notes that several sectors including health care/social assistance, retail trade, and accommodations/food services have helped relive the economy as the industries had the most advertised job openings. Moreover, the figures reported do not necessarily mean recovery for the economy.
