Roane County’s rate jumped to 8.5 percent, up 1 percent over the December number.
That means 25,720 of the county’s 28,110-strong labor force was employed during the month
Roane County, which consistently has one of the state’s lowest rates, maintained that status in January, again coming in with fifth-lowest number among all counties.
