Title: Significant Drop in Baltimore County Unemployment Rate

4.0% bests Maryland rate for the month

 

In just one month, 1,400 people came off unemployment in Baltimore County. The Baltimore County unemployment rate is now 4.0%, a significant drop of .3% over the previous month, and lower than the Maryland’s September rate.

“This is great economic news. We all benefit when more people bring home a paycheck,” said Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler.

The leisure and hospitality and government sectors saw the most job gains.

Employment growth is driven by job creation in new business developments throughout the County, including Tradepoint Atlantic, downtown Towson, Owings Mills and expansions of the County’s major health care facilities.
