Here’s an updated graph of the unemployment rate in Sacramento County through February 2012. The current unemployment rate released from EDD is 11.2%. This is definitely high, but thankfully lower than the peak of 13.2% in July 2010. The past few months have been flirting with 11.0%, so let’s hope we break into 10.0% at some point this year (that would be nice). By the way, feel free to use this image on your blog or website.

It’s amazing to see a history of unemployment over the past decade, isn’t it?
