By: Nathan Lyttle
The unemployment rates dropped in all 120 Kentucky counties between August 2013 and 2014.

That's the first time on record the year-over-year jobless rate declined in every Kentucky county at the same time, according to the state Office of Employment and Training.

Last month's lowest jobless rate was 5.1 percent in Owen, Simpson and Woodford counties.
Magoffin County had the highest rate at 13.3 percent.
