San Diego unemployment rate creeps up again

The unemployment rate in San Diego County was 10.5 percent last month, up from a revised 10.4 percent in September, and well above the 6.7 percent jobless rate from a year ago, a state agency reported Friday.

The state’s unadjusted unemployment rate was 12.3 percent in October, up from 12 percent the previous month, and the highest it’s been since World War II, according to the California Employment Development Department.

The national unemployment rate was steady at 9.5 percent last month, according to the EDD.

Between September and October, the San Diego region added 8,100 jobs, primarily in the government and education sectors, according to the EDD.
