20 yrs of Unemployment Rates in Video
Pretty amazing stuff from Google.
They've accumulated data from the past 20 years, which you can play-back via a state-by-state graph. Starting from January 1990, you can watch our unemployment rates ebb and flow right before your very eyes, and skyrocket to the current state of less-than-awesome affairs.
It appears that Puerto Rico currently has the dubious distinction of having the highest unemployment at a whopping 16.1% (whoa :0/ ) followed by Nevada, at 13.4%.
The lowest in the country is.......(drumroll please).... North Dakota! at 3.5%! They must be doing something right! I wonder what it is??? We need to replicate it pronto!
