Michigan says that seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates have increased in all 17 of the state's regional labor markets.

The figures released Thursday by the Department of Technology, Management & Budget also show that Michigan's overall unadjusted unemployment rate rose by 0.1 percentage points, from May's 8.9 percent to 9 percent in June.

The department says rates ranged from a low 6.2 percent in the Ann Arbor region to a high of 10.3 percent in the northeastern Lower Peninsula. It says the rate was 10.2 percent in the Detroit area.

The department says the rising unemployment rate reflects an increase in the number of people seeking work. It says the number of people working also rose in June.
