Unemployment rates rose in all the nation's largest metropolitan areas in April, with Indiana's Elkhart-Goshen again logging the biggest gain.
The Labor Department says all 372 metropolitan areas saw their jobless rates increase in April from a year earlier. Elkhart-Goshen's rate jumped to 17.8%, up 12.7 percentage points from a year ago.
The figures aren't seasonally adjusted, making month-to-month comparisons far more volatile.
