Increase in Unemployment by County

Several areas were hit the hardest during the last 4 years as unemployment rates throughout the United States increased. California, Florida, Arizona, Georgia (States with a big housing bubble run-up) are experiencing higher levels of unemployment, as are some of the midwestern states--Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota.

You can expect the unemployment insurance programs in these hard hit states to be stressed for the next few years.
