On Friday, the California Employment Development Department (EDD) reported Tulare County’s jobless rate for March was 13.2 percent, slightly better than the 13.4 percent rate in February. But it’s more than double the state rate, which dipped to 6.5 percent in March, the lowest it’s been in nearly seven years.

Tulare County’s jobless rate was the third highest in March in California. Only Colusa County’s rate of 20.6 percent and Imperial County at 18.6 percent were higher.
