For the seocnd month in a row, all three counties in central Oregon saw a drop in their unemployment rate.


Regional economist Damon Runberg says it's nice to see significant job growth.


"So when you look at heh April numbers and the revised numbers from the first quarter, January through March, the jobs picture for Deschtues County is much better than first thought.  In April, the county gained 670 jobs seasonally."


Growing tourim and construction jobs help boost the numbers.


In April, Deschutes County's unemployment rate was 10.1 percent.  That's the lowest rate in the county since October of 2008.


Unemployment in Crook County was 12.8 percent and in Jefferson County 11.1 percent.
