Interactive: Unemployment in Redondo

Though Redondo Beach's unemployment rate increased slightly, it's still below the state average. Check out the interactive map for more information.

The unemployment rate in Redondo Beach in January increased to 5.8 percent from 5.4 percent in December, according to preliminary data released by the state on Friday.

The state of California as a whole saw a similar trend with a slight increase to 10.4 percent from 10.3 percent in December.

Redondo's unemployment rate is slightly higher than the surrounding beach cities of Torrance (5.4 percent), Hermosa Beach (4.8 percent) and Manhattan Beach (3.9 percent), but still below the state average. The city has a lower unemployment rate than Lawndale (10.8 percent) and Hawthorne (14.2 percent).

The figures above, including those for Redondo Beach, are not seasonally-adjusted, meaning seasonal temporary work such as holiday employment is not factored into the rate. The seasonally-adjusted figure shows the state as a whole staying the same with a 9.8 percent unemployment figure.

Seasonally-adjusted figures are not available for cities.

"Redondo's unemployment rate is slightly higher than the surrounding beach cities of Torrance (5.4 percent), Hermosa Beach (4.8 percent) and Manhattan Beach (3.9 percent)." Has anybody noticed that many people seem to be moving out of Hermosa Beach? The number of "For Rent" and "For Sale" signs seem unusually high. I'm thinking that the lower unemployment rate for Hermosa Beach is due to the unemployed having to move out of town. If they're not here, they are not part of the Hermosa Beach statistic. Do any real estate agents have any comment about this? Is my observation correct?
