The state Department of Labor says Nebraska's preliminary unemployment rate in January hit 3.5 percent, its lowest mark since September 2008.

The rate was a tenth of a point under the 3.6 percent in December and four-tenths of a point below the January 2013 rate of 3.9 percent.

The latest Nebraska figure remained well below the national unemployment rate of 6.6 percent for January.
