Georgia's jobless rate is at its lowest mark since March 2009.
Department of Labor Commissioner Mark Butler says in January, unemployment sat at 9.2 percent.
That's a decline of two-tenths of a percentage point from December's 9.4 percent.
A year ago, it sat at 10.1 percent.
The Department of Labor also said Georgia gained more than 83 thousand jobs in the last twelve months.
According to a news release, that's the largest January to January job growth since 2006.
Locally, the Macon metro area added 1,300 jobs from January 2011 to January 2012, a 1.4% increase.
The Warner Robins area added 600 jobs in the past year.
