Interactive Unemployment Map of USA.

Okay, it's kind of depressing, but for map nuts and statistics enthusiasts, it's interesting to go through:

Published by the New York Times online:

Search by metro area, county, and even housing bubble.

Most effected by the recession: California, Oregon, and Michigan. No surprise on Michigan, but southern California and Oregon surprised me. 20% unemployment in some counties of California, and most over 10%.

Least effected: Central USA, from North Dakota to south Texas. Tarrant County is doing better than most for many reasons including gas exploration and production.
