The U.S. unemployment rate continues to languish between nine and ten percent, but that nationwide statistic obscures the wide variation in joblessness across the country. California’s Central Valley has been one of the hardest hit, with 15 to 20 percent unemployment. Parts of the South have fared even worse—many counties have more than 20 percent joblessness. But the recession appears to have lost its teeth in the nation’s breadbasket. In most counties in Kansas, Nebraska, and North and South Dakota, less than five percent of the workforce is out of a job. And while much of the country has added jobs over the last year, many areas have not been so lucky. Take a look at the New York Times interactive map on unemployment for more.
