LANSING, Mich. — Michigan's unemployment rate, which was the nation's highest at 15.2 percent in August, crept up to 15.3 percent in September, state officials said Wednesday.

A year ago, Michigan's jobless rate was 8.9 percent.

The national unemployment rate in September was 9.8 percent.

"The state jobless rate, which rose sharply by five percentage points from December 2008 to June 2009, has stabilized somewhat since June," he added in a statement.
