Oregon’s statewide jobless rate is holding steady at about 10.5%, but that's not the case for Central Oregon. “Well unfortunately the rate jumped in two counties. In Crook County, the rate went up to 19.2% in November and in Jefferson County the rate went up to 16% in November. In Deschutes County the rate was virtually the same. It went from 15.2% in October to 15.% in November.” WorkSource Oregon analyst Carolyn Eagan says one bright spot in Deschutes County was the government sector added 450 jobs. However, that was offset by 430 jobs lost in private industry. The retail sector added 210 jobs in Deschutes County and the foot and the accommodation industry lost 460 jobs.
