Holding Our Own

Ohio unemployment figures for January are out today, and while they're too high for everyone, and the trends aren't good (it went up for every county in dramatic ways), the only positive news is that out of Ohio's 88 counties, we have the 8th lowest unemployment rate.

We also have the lowest unemployment rate in the region, ahead of Warren, Butler and Clermont counties.

It's a good example of how our diverse economy remains stronger than most, and provides more protection in bad times than most counties and regions.

Let's hope that all counties do better soon--and we will do our part to ensure that Hamilton County remains among Ohio's leaders when it comes to employment.
