Kern County unemployment rate declines in October

The labor force grew by 12,000 to almost 5.18 million, but the number of L.A. County residents working grew even faster, by 18,000 to 4.93 million, according to figures from the California Employment Development Department.

Unemployment rates in Kern County took a slight dip from September to October of 2017.

In Madera County, the unemployment rate was 6.6 percent in October, unchanged from September and below 8.2 percent a year ago.

State job analyst Steve Hine says, "This puts the unemployment rate below any rate that we've seen in the recovery since the Great Recession and in fact below any rate that we saw between the 2001 and 2008 recessions". There was a gain of 300 jobs in trade, transportation and utilities.

EDD said the number of unemployed Californians last month was 952,000, down 35,000 from September and a decline of 63,000 from October previous year.

The only sector to report a substantial drop in payrolls (down 1,100) was "other services", including repair/maintenance, personal services and some nonprofits.
