State Unemployment Rates

Posted Friday, July 31 2009

Unemployment rate data by state is now in place. Check out New York's unemployment rate or California's unemployment rate history for example. This isn't revolutionary information that I'm revealing (though I do hope it's a little more convenient). It's just a starting point for further exploration of state-level unemployment measures. The next step is to delve into the city-level data. I find there isn't as much easily obtained data at that level. Look for it soon.

I've also added a page with an overview of the unemployment situation. As I add more unemployment data to the site, this will serve as the main entry point with a high level overview and links into the more detailed data.
