The New York Times published this map of unemployment rates by county across the entire United States. I find it interesting that the much maligned Midwest is actually faring pretty well outside of Michigan and a few other hard-hit areas (but man ALL of Michigan looks pretty bad!). The Southeast is suffering quite a bit, as is much of the West Coast.

The map was published on March 3rd. Where did you see that it didn't include 2009? I don't see that anywhere, and assume it DOES include 2009. The statistics have been published for January and February already by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

I'm glad to see that the counties surrounding me are all doing somewhat well. Dane County, WI is 3.9% which isn't too bad. Columbia county is 6.2%.


Upper Michigan's high unemployment rate isn't anything new. There really isn't anything up there except for logging.

The highest unemployment rate in WI is 10.7% and that is Iron County.
The lowest unemployment rate in WI is 3.9%

It says dec 08 unemployement rate right above the map, I think march 3 is when the map was posted by who ever. I could be wrong.

Yeah this map is 2 months behind. The current "government" average is a full 1% higher then this map is showing. That is considerable.

I read an article on CNN a few days ago that showed the Midwest is suffering in areas, but overall is doing much better than anticipated.

Hmmm, some places in Oklahoma actually went down, as much as 2.7 percent.

Pretty depressing to look at.
