Unemployment by State = Nowhere to Hide

BLS reports:

Annual average unemployment rates rose in 2009 in all regions, divisions, and states, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment-population ratios decreased across all of these geographic areas as well. The U.S. jobless rate jumped by 3.5 percentage points from the prior year to 9.3 percent, while the national employment-population ratio fell by 2.9 points to 59.3 percent.
