State jobless rate
SEATTLE — Washington state has more jobs than before the start of the recession, with a January employment rate of 6.4 percent, the Employment Security Department reported Wednesday.
Washington added 3,800 jobs between December and January.
State economists said they now believe Washington didn’t lose as many jobs as originally thought and has more than recovered from recession job losses.
Figures for Clallam and Jefferson counties will be available Tuesday.
Previous data suggested the state lost about 205,000 jobs from February 2008 through February 2010.
After further study and analysis, economists now believe the losses were around 189,000.
A recent statistical update also found that Washington had gained more jobs last year than previously announced, resulting in a net job growth from February 2010 through January 2014 of nearly 193,000 jobs.
