From the Glendale News-Press:

Local unemployment rates fell slightly in October, even as jobless figures across Los Angeles County rose 0.2%, the state’s Economic Development Department reported Friday.

Glendale’s unemployment rate dropped to 11%, from 11.1% in September. The unemployment rate in Burbank was 10.3%, down from 10.4% the month prior, according to the report.

The jobless figure in the La Crescenta-Montrose area also declined 0.1% from September’s rate, to 5.8%, although it held steady in La Cañada Flintridge at 4.7%, according to the department.

Unemployment in Los Angeles County, by contrast, grew from a seasonally adjusted 12.6% in September to 12.8% in October, although the figures are not directly comparable since local unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted.
