RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) — Continuing a strong year, Inland Southern California added another 4,600 jobs in November on a seasonally adjusted basis.* This increase builds on the 7,400 non-farm positions added in October. The most recent jump puts Inland Southern California at the top of the list for the most jobs added in a single region in California in November.

The numbers were released today in a monthly report compiled and seasonally adjusted by the University of California, Riverside’s School of Business Administration Center for Economic Forecasting and Development.

In addition, Inland Southern California’s unemployment rate fell to 6.1 percent in the latest numbers, compared to a 6.2 percent unemployment rate in October and a 7.6 percent unemployment rate in November 2014.

The Center for Economic Forecasting and Development cautions against reading too much into any single month’s numbers, especially near year’s end. Nonetheless, this month’s employment estimates are another indication the local inland economy is continuing to expand.

 * The California Employment Development Department releases its latest estimates of job counts on the third Friday of every month. Each month, the Center for Economic Forecasting and Development will provide seasonally adjusted estimates of employment along with additional analysis of the most recent employment trends occurring throughout Inland Southern California. Today marks the Center’s inaugural employment release.
