    came accross this earlier. pretty neat. everyone talks about unemployment but these charts really give me a more descriptive understanding of what is actually going on whether its comparing sectors or comparing states
    Oh Yeah!

    Pretty cool from what I can see on my phone, I'll watch the video when I get home. This looks like it's just based on people applying for benefits though, right? I'd like to see some numbers that include people who aren't eligible. I wouldn't be surprised if the employment rate amongst college graduates in the past few years is as dismal as it feels.

    i didnt look too deeply into it. but it does a good job showing overall trends. I really like the one shown by sector vs time because it shows what industry you are in has a great affect on how difficult it is to get a job. For example in construction, you can see that the unemployment rate has been over 12% for pretty much the last 3 years and at times over 20%+. where as if you are in the education and health field it wasnt over 7% at any given time.
    Oh Yeah!
