Paige McClatchy's curator insight, September 15, 2013 8:45 PM

This interactive map offers a lot to read between the lines. Most interesting to me, the middle of the country seemed to be somewhat spared in comparison to the East and West coasts. Perhaps that is becuase the middle of the country has lower population than the coast and that the majority of the jobs held by people there are related to food production. The bread basket of America will never be relieved of demand for goods and that also means workers. Also super interesting- Washigton DC and the surrounding area reflected a somewhat better unemployment rate. Same with Vermont and New Hampshire- perhaps the population is more even with the labor demand than in extremely populated places that only have so many jobs.

Al Picozzi's curator insight, September 20, 2013 3:51 PM

It makes you wonder about the recovery the government is also talking about.  Alot of the new jobs created are temporary, part-time and low wages.  What they also do not tell you is that the unemployment is going down because the government does count the people that are unemployed but have stopped looking from work.  Alot of these people are just tired of looking and have given up.  So if your not looking for work, but are unemployed, you are not counted as unemployed for the purpose of the unemployment number, interesting isnt't it??  What the map shows is that the upper mid-west and the central mid-west seem to be recession proof.   Is that because alot of this area are family farms or is it because these areas are low population and there is a shortage of people to work the available job?  Or are these states just better at running their government?

James Hobson's curator insight, September 18, 2014 11:35 PM

(North America topic 10)
After viewing this animated map of unemployment rates over time, I'm surprised that it hasn't become more common. In fact, I don't think I've seen anything like this on any major news reports or websites. (I wonder why?) I was surprised to find out that many (though not all) Midwestern counties appear to have been just as adversely affected as more urbanized, coastal regions; although the Midwest's unemployment rate has overall been less than other regions', recently it has been so only by a narrowing margin.
I would make 2 suggestions if this map were to be remade or enhanced: First, I would add more recent data to show which regions are recovering (if at all) compared to others. Secondly, I would make additional brackets to represent rates in excess of 10%, since a large portion of counties have fallen into this top color level.

Publishing is not dead. It is alive as never before. You just need to do one thing : open your eyes to the values of your customers and publish content meaningful to them.

 

Like curation, Publishing is about caring.
