Map of Unemployment in the United States
The New York Times has updated their "Geography of a Recession" map with June 2009 data. Unemployment data is shown. By looking at the map there are two cores in America that have felt layoffs more than other regions. A bloc from Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio extends down through Kentucky and spreads into the Deep South. The second core is the West Coast plus Arizona, Nevada, Alaska, and Hawaii.
