Spokane County employment data
March 11, 2014
Not Adjusted raw data and chart
Data from US Bureau of Labor Statistics
Seasonally Adjusted data and chart
Non-Farm Employment remains at about the 2005-2006 level with slow growth whether we use raw data or adjusted data. In the first chart, above, the 2nd peak for 2013 remains below the first peak. This lower second peak has been an indicator of a slowing job market in Spokane County in the past. We will not know if this is the case until much later in 2014 and perhaps it only indicates a temporary slowdown.
