The jobless rate in Illinois didn't change from May to June.

The Department of Employment Security says the unemployment rate remained at 6.3 percent. But the numbers of both employed and unemployed Illinoisans declined in June.

Employment Security Director Gertrude Jordan says the statistics indicate job losses are leveling off.

The Illinois unemployment rate in June 2001 was 5.3 percent.
