COOS BAY -- The South Coast is expected to see more people working over the next decade, though analysts say it won't keep up with statewide projections.
The Oregon Employment Department publishes long-term projections for the state, as well as each labor market region, every two years.
By 2022, neither Douglas County nor the Coos and Curry county integrated labor market are projected to fully add back all the jobs both regions lost during the Great Recession.
Douglas County is expected to see a 14 percent employment increase over the next decade, while Coos and Curry counties are projected to only see a 7 percent jump.
Both fall below the state's 15 percent projected employment growth rate.
