Cool new Google Charts plot Unemployment Rates by State or County

Leave it to the engineers at Google to come up with yet another pretty cool thing.

Now if you search google for something like, "unemployment rate in California" or "Unemployment Rate in Cook County, IL" (see below), the first result will be a little thumb-nail of a chart---If you click on that, it goes to a google chart--using public data to chart the unemployment rate.

The tool is very easy to use, and lets you even compare the unemployment by USA, any state, or any US County.

So if you're curious---go to google.com and search for Unemployment Rate in XXXX to see the charts for yourself.
