MADISON, Wis. -Unemployment rates are up in most Wisconsin counties and cities.

The state Department of Workforce Development reports Wednesday that preliminary rates for February are up in all but two of the state's largest 32 cities. Similarly, rates are up in all but three of Wisconsin's 72 largest counties.

But DWD cautions that because local unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted, increases between January and February are common due to an expanding labor force.

Racine continues to have the highest unemployment rate for any city, increasing from 11.3 percent to 11.5 percent. Beloit is second at 10.6 percent, which was unchanged from January.

Bayfield County had the highest rate for any county at 12.7 percent. Dane County had the lowest at 4.6 percent.
