Southwestern Oregon Economic Indicators for December 2021 (Coos & Curry data)
Attached are the Economic Indicators for the month of December showcasing the November 2021 data.
It is very hard to believe that we have come to the end of 2021, poof with the blink of an eye, we will be moving forward to 2022. We have made large gains to add back jobs to reach low unemployment levels once again. We still have uncertainty in filling vacant positions in the workforce, only time will tell how long these issues will continue in the future.
Here is the feature article for this month as detailed on the indicators.
