Unemployment is going down in Central Oregon according to the latest numbers. The unemployment rates in all three Central Oregon counties fell in January. Deschutes and Jefferson County's unemployment fell a half percentage to 14%, and Crook County fell one whole percentage point to 17.6%. Carolyn Eagan is with WorkSource Oregon: “Where we are in all of the countries just about where we were in January in 2010. It’s a good sign we're holding steady compared to a year ago. For the last quarter of 2010 and now moving in 2011 and I like that. I think that means our employment situation has stabilized.” Crook County saw the biggest drop in unemployment thanks to jobs added in logging and mining.
