Washington State’s County Unemployment Numbers for January Released Today
OLYMPIA, WA - County unemployment rates and employment data for January 2018 were released today by the Washington Employment Security Department. For this region: Asotin County's unemployment is 5.4%; Garfield County's is 7.8%; Columbia County's unemployment is 6.7%; and Whitman County's is 4.9%.
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 of 4.7% that was announced last week.
