Vanishing employment across the country

vanishing employment

This map displays how the economic crisis has caused employment losses, shown by county, and further shows how job losses first struck in the most vulnerable regions and then spread rapidly to the rest of the country. Blue dots represent a net increase in jobs, while red dots indicate a decrease. The larger the dot, the greater the number of jobs gained or lost.
