The Oregonian Graphic

The Oregonian Graphic

Unemployment in Oregon continues to fall, at least by the official numbers which don’t account for those who have given up finding work, are working part-time or who are underemployed – working at jobs they’re overqualified for.

The numbers released by the Oregon Department of Employment show joblessness falling from 7.3% in November to 7.0% in December. The U.S. overall unemployment rate dropped from 7% in November to 6.7% in December.

Around Oregon, Lincoln County’s jobless rate improved slightly, from 7.7 in November to 7.5% in December. Benton County, which historically has very low unemployment improved slightly from 5.4% in November to 5.3% in December.
Tillamook County went from 6.6% down to 6.3% Eugene 7.2% to 6.9%. Salem, 7.9% down to 7.5%. Bend improved slightly from 9.1% in November to 8.9% in December.

Portland’s numbers improved a bit as well from 6.8% down to 6.6%.

Statewide, there are 30,000 more Oregonians working (official numbers) than at this time last year. Employment gains were in major industries, professional and business services, with hiring up in state government – local governments lost well over a thousand jobs.
