EL CENTRO — A significant adjustment in December’s unemployment numbers for Imperial County has made January’s numbers from the state Employment Development Department look poorer by comparison.

In January, the EDD estimated the county’s unemployment rate for December at 19.4 percent. On Friday, the department issued a revision knocking 2.4 percentage points off that number while estimating January’s rate at 18.8 percent.
