Nearly 78,300 New Mexicans were without jobs in June.

Unemployment statewide remains well above the 7.1 percent jobless rate in June 2009.

Unemployment last month ranged from 3.6 percent in Los Alamos County to 19 percent in Luna County in southern New Mexico.

The national unemployment rate in June was 9.5 percent. Twenty-six states and the District of Columbia had higher unemployment rates than New Mexico.
