Georgia's unemployment rate saw the biggest one month drop in 34 years in November.
A Georgia Department of Labor news release says the jobless rate sits at 9.9 percent.
That's three tenths of a percentage point lower that the 10.2 percent rate in October.
One year ago, the unemployment rate for the state of Georgia hovered around 10.4 percent.
Warner Robins saw a loss of 500 jobs from November of last year to November 2011, while the Macon area added 1,100 jobs in the past year.
State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler credits retail hiring and more jobs in the financial and business sectors for the rise.
He says the number of jobs in the state rose to 3.8 million in November, and jobs in education and health care increased as well.
Georgia still has about 20,000 fewer jobs than it did in November of last year.
