One Response to “The Geography of the Crisis”

  1. Michael Wells Says:

    The map shows some interesting variations in unemployment.
    Nationally 7.1%
    Metros 7.0%
    Rural 7.6%
    Manufacturing 8.0%

    But the manufacturing is problematic. In Oregon anyway, it shows lumber counties as manufacturing, hence high unemployment. Washington County with all the high tech manufacturing is 6.9%.
