November 2017 Economic Indicators

Good morning Economic Indicators fans!

It seems that this little holiday called Thanksgiving has thrown off my schedule a bit! Now that I’m back on track, here is the November 2017 set of Economic Indicators for Southwestern Oregon. Inside this month’s edition:

  • Decreasing unemployment rates over-the-year across our three counties, as well as the State of Oregon.

  • Over-the-year job gains continue to remain positive for Coos and Douglas counties. Curry County experienced a decrease in the number of jobs over-the-year, most notably in Leisure and Hospitality (likely the slowdown in tourism activity).

  • Graph of the Month!

This edition’s GOTM is my attempt at making our data a little bit easier to conceptualize – a different take on unemployment rather than the unemployment rate itself! I’ve created charts for Coos and Curry counties, as well, so feel free to contact me if you would like a copy of the graphs for either Coos, Curry, or Douglas County.
