This is an interesting graphic, it looks like most areas were hardest hit in 2009. I imagine that the only way we can go is up now:

It could start getting better soon. New Unemployment claims were down last week. Stocks push higher after drop in jobless claims - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091125/ap_on_bi_st_ma_re/us_wall_street - broken link)

Some day we'll see that map played backwards.

Looks like the entire country east of the Mississippi is one solid chunk of the two highest unemployment categories as is the entire West Coast.

Pretty much, people should be looking at good chunks of the Plains states and the Eastern Rockies for jobs.

Does anyone have any idea why those September 2009 yellow (2.0 - 2.9%) and gold (3.0 - 3.9%) counties have such low unemployment? I'm curious.

I think it has to do with boom and bust cycles. A lot of those counties are rural counties on the Plains that never really boomed so they didn't feel the wrath of the recession.

Many of those counties are energy boom areas that have commodities like oil, natural gas, or coal that have increased in value. Housing shortages are common in places like Williston, ND and Gillette, WY.
