A separate forecast by Fairfield University Economist Ed Deak, for the New England Economic Partnership, also released Friday, predicts a gain of 10,400 jobs in 2011, but a loss of 6,400 jobs in 2012. He projects that unemployment will stay near 9 percent in both 2012 and 2013, and will be 7.7 percent in 2015, far higher than pre-recession levels.
