January, however, was a smooth month for jobs across Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County, despite softening economies in Latin America, Europe, Canada and China, according to a monthly report released Monday by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.

Unemployment in Miami-Dade fell to 6 percent in January, down from 6.1 percent in December and 6.4 percent in January 2015. Broward had an even larger year-over-year decrease, down to 4.7 percent in January from 5.5 percent one year prior.
