The Geography of a Recession

Catherine Rampell:

O.K., some of you complained about the clarity of the county-by-county unemployment slideshow (from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’s GeoFRED site) that I posted last week.

So: For your viewing pleasure, here’s a Times-made, interactive version, showing seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates around the country in May 2009. Many thanks to the Times graphics editors for this useful tool.
