The number of people out of work is on the decline, but still not where things were two years ago.

The latest numbers from the Texas Workforce Commission show 5.9% of the workforce lookng for work in the College Station-Bryan Metro area with some 7,000 people looking for a job.

That's a small improvement from a month earlier where the number of unemployed stood at 6.2% but a little worse from December of 09 when 5.7% of the workforce didn't have a job.

Those numbers put us at the fourth best unemploymente rate in the state.

Here are the top 5 metro areas in Texas:

*Midland 4.9%
*Amarillo 5.3%
*Lubbock 5.8%
*B-CS 5.9%
