WSJ Unemployment Rate Graphical Tool

The folks at the Wall Street Journal have created an interesting graphical tool that looks at the unemployment rate by state from 2005 to 2009 and compares the jobless rate to the overall United States average.

The tool is easy to use and compare your state to others in the nation. The Sample in the screen shot, shows the State of North Carolina, and how it used to track the national average, but in 2008/2009 the jobs situation in the Tar-heel state has worsened significantly more than the national average.
