LOS ANGELES — California's economic recovery has been a mixed bag with coastal regions seeing healthy job growth while inlands areas continue to struggle, according to the UCLA Anderson Forecast.
The university economists said in their quarterly report that coastal counties have employment gains that have outpaced other parts of the nation, the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1bj51Jr ) reported Thursday.
However, inland regions are showing little and sometimes negative growth.
In Riverside and San Bernardino counties, the unemployment rate was nearly 10 percent in October, compared with 7 percent in San Diego County and nearly 6 percent in Orange County.
UCLA economists say inland areas that typically rely on government and construction haven't found a new engine of growth.
