Regional Economist Damon Runberg says Deschutes County's unemployment dropped below 9 percent.

 

"So in Deschutes County we  dropped down  to 8.9 percent.  That's the lowest level in well over five years.  That's impressive to see that kind of drop.  It's a 1.5 percent drop in one year and that's a pretty significant drop in one year."

 

Crook County's unemployment rate dropped to 11.2 percent -- the lowest rate since 2008 and Jefferson County dropped to 9.9 percent.

 

In Jefferson County, manufacturing jobs added 150 new jobs to the area.  In Crook County, the transportation industry saw the largest job gains, adding 80 jobs to the county.
