US Unemployment Rates December 2008

GreenInfo Network

Gina Clemmer at New Urban Research, Inc. posted on the Society for Conservation GIS email list, data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and represent unemployment levels as of December, 2008. We felt this data would interest the GE community enabling them to both see their county, how it compared to those around them as well as others throughout the country. Nationally this is a powerful image and there are some incredibly high numbers, look at Mackinac County in Northern Michigan that have an unemployment rate of 24.2%, or pan to Puerto Rico.
