Unemployment drops in LA and Orange counties

Unemployment drops in LA and Orange counties

While the 0.9 percent growth rate was modest compared to the rates of 1 to 2 percent as of a year or two ago, Smith said that number doesn't give the complete picture.

San Diego's unemployment rate in October, 3.7 percent, was lower than the statewide unadjusted unemployment rate of 4.3 percent and the nationwide rate of 3.9 percent, according to the state Employment Development Department. Weaver said the decrease is unusual for this time of year as education jobs tend to increase during the first few months of the school year.

Unemployment rates in Kern County took a slight dip from September to October of 2017.

Meanwhile, the state saw job declines in manufacturing and professional and business services. This followed a revised gain of 50,300 jobs in September. Both the 3-month and the 6-month changes are better than reported last month.

The only sector to report a substantial drop in payrolls (down 1,100) was "other services", including repair/maintenance, personal services and some nonprofits.

Nine of California's eleven industry sectors added a total of 262,100 jobs over the year. The largest job gains were in educational and health services, up 76,400 jobs (a 3.0 percent increase), construction, up 44,400 jobs (a 5.7 percent increase), and leisure and hospitality, up 37,500 jobs (a 2.0 percent increase). The region lost 83,100 jobs year-over-year in September 2009.
