King County jobless rates for November released today
December 29, 2012 · 11:02 PM
County unemployment rates and employment data for November 2012 were released and are posted online at www.esd.wa.gov/employmentdata; click “Statewide and county detail” in the “Current unemployment rate” box.
Unemployment rates at the county level are not seasonally adjusted because the sample size is too small to accommodate that additional analysis. Therefore, they should not be compared directly to the seasonally adjusted statewide rate that we announced last week.
At the top of the state map on which we’ve posted the county unemployment rates, we’ve posted the statewide, non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for direct comparison.
Here is the release schedule for the December 2012 county numbers. The 2013 schedule will be issued in January.
