Dataviz illuminates state-by-state underemployment, 2003 to 2012

Map & Data Resources | By Mike Alberti |

This chart enables a quick view of how unemployment and underemployment within a state has changed over time. Simply choose a state in the upper right-hand corner of the visualization to see how the rates have changed.

Drops in underemployment do not necessarily follow drops in unemployment. Take Virginia, for example. Its unemployment rate in 2012 was down from its 2010 level (dropping to 5.9 percent from 7.4 percent), but it’s underemployment rate was up (to 5.9 percent from 5.6 percent).
