Unemployment Rate Drops Again In Central Oregon

The unemployment rate continues to dip in Central Oregon. State Employment Department Economist Damon Runberg says Deschutes county dropped to 7-point-3-per cent from 8-per cent in September. He says Crook county fell a full percentage point to 8-per cent in October and Jefferson county dropped to 7-point-5-per cent from 8-point-4 per cent. Runberg says the October numbers don’t reflect the Governor’s two-week freeze on business activity. He says the November report is expected to see some changes in the unemployment rate because of the freeze.
