Levels of unemployment, the share of workers in the labor force not working, but looking for work, are at their lowest levels since comparable records began back in the mid-1970s. During the most recent recession Central Oregon’s counties posted some of the highest rates of unemployment in the state. However, years of economic expansion and job growth drastically improved the employment outcomes of local residents.

The unemployment rate in Deschutes County is nearly identical with the national and statewide rates. Historically, Deschutes County tended to have a higher rate of unemployment than both the nation and state due to more seasonal industries and strong rates of in-migration.
