Unemployment in Central Oregon decreased in two of the three counties in February. And in the third county, it stayed the same. Unemployment stayed at 12.7% in Jefferson County and fell in Deschutes and Crook counties. Regional Economist Carol Eagan is seeing some good signs. “I think the real story this month is in Crook County. The rate fell 2 ½% from a year ago and a full 7/10th of a percent from last month. Compared to February a year ago, Crook County added 60 people to its labor force. Deschutes County's unemployment rate fell by 3/10ths of a percent. The job growth in all the counties seemed to be in several different sectors,  and not concentrated in just a few fields.
