It would be very helpful to know how these job numbers compare to the number of new jobs NC averaged in years past. I believe the Charlotte Metro averaged about 17,500 new jobs a year prior to 2008.

Federal government stats (see link below) give a good basis to compare how far we have to go to affect the unemployment rate in this state.

Net new jobs, NC:

2004-2005: 48,872
2005-2006: 114,164
2006-2007 46,104

Fiscal year ends in June also lend to less openings.

Could be. Though job growth in NC is trending below the national rate at this point.
