The Nebraska Department of Labor says the state's unemployment rate remained unchanged in December, matching the 3.7 percent in November.

The department report issued Friday says the rate was 4.2 percent in December 2011. Labor Commissioner Catherine Lang attributes the consistently low rate to the state's stable and diverse economy.

The state's December rate was less than half the national rate of 7.8 percent in December.
