Regional Unemployment Numbers Released

The latest unemployment numbers for the Harrisburg MSA, Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry Counties have been released and can be viewed by clicking here

We held steady at 5% unemployment, but the good news is nearly 3000 more people are working. Lancaster is slightly below our rate and York is slightly above, so the larger South Central Region is performing well for Pennsylvania.

With lower unemployment rates, that means that workforce recruitment and retention will become a bigger issue with our local businesses.  The Chamber & CREDC have been preparing for this through our Education & Business Partnership Committee, and some recent funding support received from the state.  We continue to believe that the competitive regions of the future will have the skilled, talented workforce needed to compete on a global basis.
