There's a bigger pool of people in the labor force in Citrus, Marion and Levy counties and there are more people employed, but that could not prevent the unemployment rate from peaking in July according to figure released by the region's career agency.
CareerSource reported Friday that the three-county regional jobless rate was 7.8 percent in July, up 0.5 percent from June. That rate is down 1.0 percent over the year and 2.6 percentage points lower than two years ago.
There were 15,845 people unemployed out of a labor force that has grown to 202,968.
