Some more encouraging news on the unemployment front. The latest unemployment numbers for February in Central Oregon are all down. Regional Economist Carolyn Eagan says Crook and Deschutes County's unemployment fell a point and Jefferson County's fell close to a point: “I think that the highest seasonal adjusted rates are behind us. Last year the seasonality of our employment is changing, we've been talking about that because of what's happening in construction and manufacturing.” Crook County has the highest unemployment rate at 16.4%, followed by Jefferson at 13.4% and Deschutes is at 13.1%.” The industries with the most job creation include professional and business services and educational and health services.
