Ohio job market: No sign of improvement
Ohio’s job market continues to bump along without signs of improvement. Job levels have
moved up and down in a relatively narrow band and are now about where they were two years ago, according to seasonally adjusted payroll numbers for nonfarm wage and salary jobs released June 15 by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS). Overall, the number of jobs in the state remains below where it was when the recession officially ended in November 2001. Month-to-month data can be volatile and are later revised, so it is unwise to put too much weight in a single month.
