County-by-county unemployment rates will be released Friday.
The recession pushed North Carolina's unemployment rate to 11.1 percent in January, a historic high. The January unemployment rate release also marked a year that the state's jobless rate has been stuck above its previous high.
The new report on unemployment rates comes on the heels of Thursday's commission meeting, the first for the new Employment Security Commission's chairman, Lynn Holmes.
Holmes was sworn in earlier this month.
