Unemployment Rates in Sacramento County Over the Past Three Months: May, June & July 2009

edd_logoHere are the most recent figures for unemployment in Sacramento County as of July 2009 per the Employment Development Department. The figures below consider both cities and Census Designated Places (CDP) for July 2009 (also compared with May and June 2009). Data for August 2009 has not yet been released (wait about one month for that).
