Darke County unemployment rates remain high during June

The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services has released unemployment figures for June. Darke County remained steady at 11.7%, where rates have hovered since a 5-percentage-point spike between October 2008 and January February 2009. Darke County's rate was the 37th best out of the 88 counties.

Other area counties: Mercer - 9.4; Miami - 12.7; Preble - 13.2; Montgomery - 12.4. Ohio's overall unemployment was 11.1% for June, while the national average was 9.5%.


  1. Nice graph. I don't think I've ever seen a graph of just Darke County like that.

  2. The largest decrease in employment by the graph occurred from October, 2008 to February, 2009. That would seem to be correct.

  3. What companies are cutting jobs the most there?

  4. Im sure Obama will fix this ??

  5. Probably not as quick as people would like. But there is no question about who was in the White House when the huge unemployment occurred,
