PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona's September unemployment dipped to 8.2 percent, down from 8.3 percent the two previous months.

The biggest job gains in September were recorded in education and health services and in leisure and hospitality. The sectors with the biggest job losses were construction and financial activities.
