At last count, Lewis County had a population of 11,367 with an unemployment rate of 6.9%. That’s about double the national average, which means we’ve got a large number of people who are eager to get to work. The per capita income (county average of $14,664) is well below the national average, meaning we won’t break the bank when you do put us to work. Besides the ongoing state-funded job training opportunities locally, 70% of our population has a high school diploma or better.
