Del Norte jobless rate down 2.1 percent in past 12 months

Del Norte County’s preliminary April unemployment rate was 11.3 percent, down 0.9 percentage points from the revised March rate (12.2 percent) and down 2.1 percentage points from a year-ago rate (13.4 percent).

The comparable, not seasonally adjusted California rate (8.5 percent) is down 0.9 percentage points as well. In spite of the month-over rate drop, Del Norte slipped from 34th- to 37th-best among the 58 counties statewide, according to the North Coast Region of the state Labor Market Information Division.

Some surrounding county rates include Siskiyou (12.9 percent), Shasta (11.1 percent), Trinity (13.7 percent), and Humboldt (8.4 percent). Marin (4.6 percent) has the lowest April rate and Imperial County the highest (24 percent).

The comparable U.S. rate is 7.1 percent, down 0.5 percentage points over the month.

For Del Norte, a decrease of 50 government jobs offset otherwise positive net year-over private industry job gains.
