Unemployment continues to go up in Central Oregon this summer. The latest numbers out for July show unemployment increased in all three counties. Unemployment stands at 15.6% in Crook County, 13.4% in Jefferson County and 12.6% in Deschutes County. Regional Economist Carolyn Eagan says these numbers are familiar. “The trend we are seeing this year is exactly what happened last year. During the winter and the spring there were noticeable declines in unemployment, but during the summer it starts going up again. And if we continue like we did last year, we'll stay at 12.6% the rest of the summer and hopefully the rate will go back down in the fall and winter months. Deschutes County did add 850 jobs in July. There were job gains in all private sector industries.
