                                   IMMEDIATE RELEASE
        SANTA CRUZ-WATSONVILLE METROPOLITAN STATISTICAL AREA (MSA)
                                  (Santa Cruz County)
NOTE TO EDITORS: This California labor force and industry employment data is being released
today instead of tomorrow as scheduled due to an inadvertent early release of data by the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). While the BLS announced some state and regional data and
county unemployment rates, more detailed local labor force and industry data must be completed
each month here at EDD. That work was expedited for this early release.

The unemployment rate in the Santa Cruz County was 7.9 percent in June 2013, unchanged
from a revised 7.9 percent in May 2013, and below the year-ago estimate of 10.3 percent.
This compares with an unadjusted unemployment rate of 8.8 percent for California and 7.8
percent for the nation during the same period.
