The local jobs picture in New Hampshire continues to improve. New data out Thursday from N.H. Employment Security shows that all ten counties had lower unemployment rates in November than compared to the start of 2013.
The rate in Coos County remains the highest in the state, but it’s down 2.4% from last January. Cheshire and Strafford have each seen their jobless rates fall by 2 percentage points.

Anthem Blue Cross says it’s extending the renewal date for canceled health insurance plans to December 16.
Last month, the company sent cancelation notices to 22,000 New Hampshire customers because current plans didn’t satisfy stricter new protections in the Affordable Care Act. Customers looking to renew originally had until November 15 to start the process, though that deadline was pushed back to December 1. Today's announcement gives policyholders an additional two weeks.
Now that the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, has launched, just how affordable will it make health insurance in New Hampshire? We hosted a special panel featuring Laura Knoy, host of NHPR's The Exchange, along with Tiffany Eddy of the Live Free or Die Alliance for a town hall discussion broadcast live on the web on Tuesday, November 19th.
