Oregon Unemployment Stuck at 10.6%

Once again, Oregon's unemployment rate hasn't budged - for yet another month it was at 10.6% in September.  Worse, the state shed another 1,800 jobs - however the shedding of government jobs was responsible for the negative number.  The private sector added 1,600 jobs in September on a seasonally adjusted basis.  So that is something, but not enough.

My impression is that Oregon tends to enter, and leave, recessions a bit later than the rest of the states. Is this a correct inference, or merely a misunderstanding of recent history?
