Do they give you the ratio between per capita of each state vs. job growth/loss ...... in percentages? That might be worthwhile knowing.

It seams like it's a simple plus or minus statistic, per capita may have little to do with it.
no big surprises here.

I agree, but believe it or not I've conversed with some people who [don't get out much] and think that California is everything south of Los Angeles. And also folks who think that Rhode Island is part of Long Island. Those people might have been from Woonsocket.

I believe the BLS lumps us in with Fall River and New Bedford as part of an SMSA, so you have to look carefully to determine whether their stats are measuring only RI.

This table is interesting and appears to pertain only to our state. Notice how unemployment has fluctuated over the years.

something certainly is not working right. It looks like the "first in last out" analogy is holding true.
