Damon Runberg says job loss during this time of year, is typical.

 

"Februrary tends to be the bottom of our seasonal ebb and flow.  It tends to be one of the lower months besides our winter tourism, it's the lower end of the tourism season.  And retail backs off and obviously construction tends to be snowed in."

 

Year over year, all  three central Oregon counties are doing much better.

 

Deschutes County's unemployment rate in February was 8.4 percent, Jefferson County was 9.6 percent and Crook County's was 10.7 percent.
