Unfortunately, it's hardly a surprise. Like the blurb said, it's mostly mortgage-related companies, and we all know OC is ground zero for the subprime crisis. It'll turn around, though. It always does.

Somewhere there is probably a statistic that indicates in what county Orange County residents work. A lot of them may work in Los Angeles County, and maybe even San Diego County. So while OC may be a bad place to find a job, residents of OC may not be in as big a trouble as one might think.

This is a little outdated, based on the 2000 census, but it gives a rough idea. There are 2 maps, one showing commutes INTO Orange County, the other OUT of Orange County. The maps break it down by county of source and destination.

At that time 260,000 people commuted into the county while 223,000 people commuted out of the county. 1,090,000 Orange County residents had jobs within the county.

FYI, the state has them for every county.
