When hasn't Michigan been a mess?

I am surprised to see that West Virignia and the vast majority of Texas has seen a relatively small rise in uneployment overall.

No surprise about the Great Plains. There are some counties there that have actually seen a decrease in unemployment. Maybe people from Alpena and Marquette should think about relocating.

I'm waiting to see the map when they put the march data in.

The new data for March is going to be ugly if where I live is any indication. Unemployment rates rates just keep going up. More parts of Oregon are going to be showing up in the red. The county I live in has 12.7 unemployment for Feb. They expect it'll be even higher soon. To make it worse the counties around us have even higher rates of unemployment. Still there are small signs they things will pick up after a while.
