CENTRAL OREGON  -- The Central Oregon jobless numbers are out for December and even State Economist Damon Runberg is impressed. He says in Deschutes county the 3-point-7-per cent unemployment rate in December was surprising to him because he didn’t think it could or would fall below 4-per cent. Runberg says Crook county’s unemployment rate between November and December fell from 5-point-4 percent down to 5-point-2-per cent. He says while that’s higher than Deschutes county, it is a historically low unemployment rate never seen before in Crook county’s history. And Runberg says in Jefferson county the unemployment rate in November was 5-per cent but in December fell to 4-point-8-per cent.
