The Columbus Region added 4,000 jobs in July and August and continued to outpace state and national rates. The Region has added 16,800 jobs over the past 12 months. That 1.8 percent 12-month increase also bests the state (0.6 percent) and national (1.6 percent) rates. Third-quarter unemployment in the Region held steady at 6.2 percent, equal to June's numbers and again ahead of Ohio and the U.S. (both at 7.3 percent in August). U.S. unemployment dipped slightly to 7.2 percent in September.
