The following is a list of California unemployment statistics.

Many of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates had relatively high levels of income. They were also located in Northern California, with two exceptions: Orange and San Luis Obispo counties. The counties with the highest unemployment rates were generally located in inland areas and had lower levels of income.

California has had an average unemployment rate of 7.5 percent for each year since 1976. Since that year, it has reached 10.0 percent or more on two occasions: 1982 and during the Great Recession. In 2013, unemployment fell below 10.0 percent to 8.9 percent. Unemployment rates in California reached historic lows in 2000 and 2006. Despite the fact that the Great Recession began in the late 2000s, unemployment rates in California were relatively low during that decade before it began.
