RALEIGH  (AP) — The latest report on North Carolina's unemployment rate paints a darker picture of the state's economy.

 
The state Commerce Department reported Tuesday that the unemployment rate in January was 10.2 percent, much higher than the national average of 8.3 percent.
 
The announcement is the first release of North Carolina jobless data in nearly two months. There was no report last month as calculations that went into last year's figures were re-examined.
 
The result is that earlier estimates of North Carolina's unemployment rate dropping below 10 percent in December are being revised.
 
The new estimates are that the state's unemployment rate was 10.4 percent in November and December before falling to 10.2 percent in January. The state unemployment rate in January 2011 was 10.5 percent.
