Michigan September unemployment numbers delayed

LANSING (WKZO) -- It will likely be a few days before we know Michigan's unemployment rate for September.

The Department of Technology, Management & Budget gets the figures used to calculate the rate from the federal government.  Due to the partial shutdown in Washington, D.C. the numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics aren't yet available, but may be soon with Congress voting to reopen the government Wednesday night.

In August, the state's jobless rate was nine-percent.
