January Job Numbers Edge Ahead of Pre-Pandemic Levels

The latest jobs report shows that there were 151,375 people working in Leon County in January, which is 789 more than last month’s revised employment number.

The January unemployment rate came in at 3.4%, up from the 2.7% reported last month. This increase is due to approximately 2,000 more people entering the work force in January.

One year ago, the January 2021 unemployment rate was 5.7%. In January, 2019 the unemployment rate was 3.5%.

Due to the COVID pandemic, 2021 job comparisons are not as meaningful as comparisons to 2020 job data. Therefore, the Leon County Jobs Report, provided below, includes 2020 data.

The number of people working in January 2022 was 497 more than those working in January 2020, but is 7,941 more than in January 2021.

The January 2022 labor force – those looking for jobs – came in at 156,821 which is 339 greater than the number reported in January 2020.

The chart below shows the monthly level of jobs in Leon County over the last 37 months with a 12-month average trend line. The highlighted numbers relate to employment levels for the month of January back to 2019.

  1. @Hope

    The New York Post published an article earlier this week that documents an expected $31M in payments to Hunter from sources with ties to the upper echelons of Chinese government. The rest of the media seems silent, treating it as they do his “misplaced” laptop.

    So now we have the Biden crime family and the mainstream media running interference for the Chinese spy network. And not nearly enough mention of this from the other side of the aisle, either.

  2. Hunter and Joe Biden are traitors. It was obvious you don’t take money from the Russian mayor’s wife and go to the Ukraine and take more money. He was a spy and they both should be brought up on charges of treason. The election was stolen and it starts at the local level.

    There are signs and when you have the mayor running around doing car commercials trying to make you think that it is official City business and runs his campaign for re-election 24/7; that is a sign that this person does not have leadership ability. He gets away with that so he escalates the misuse of office.

    When you use 27 million dollars of taxpayers hard-earned money to facilitate contributions into your campaign account you are not a public servant — you are an oligarch!

    Clean up the Tallahassee corruption and incompetence and vote John Dailey, Nick Maddox, Bill Proctor, and Diane Williams Cox OUT of office.

  3. I’d love to put a “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted Trump-Pence” sign on the back window of my truck.

    Haven’t seen one I really like yet….

  4. Biden spends his day watching Matlock and drinking Ensure. Biden has no idea what is happening around the world. He only reads what someone else put on the teleprompter. What I cannot believe is some people still have Biden/Harris stickers on their cars.

  5. Trashing Biden might make you feel better, but unless you include the words “horse”, “pony”, and “solder” he probably won’t understand. The scent of Johnson’s Baby Shampoo is rumored to stimulate him, but I don’t know that it actually sharpens his mental acuity or memory.

    It’s tough out there, so be careful!

  6. 100% thanks to Governor DeSantis despite the inept Resident of The White House and his constant attempts to crash the economy in order to gain control of the citizens much in the same way Putin is trying to control Ukraine. Except by economic means. Bam take that Resident.
