The National Unemployment Picture

Here is the national unemployment rate map by state for December 2008 (from the BLS):
Oregon has now the 6th highest unemployment rate among the states (down from 5th in November), but is much higher at 9% than the national average of 7.2%. California, Nevada, South Carolina, Rhode Island and Michigan all have higher unemployment rates than Oregon. Wyoming and the Dakotas lead the way with unemployment rates below 4%.
