NY Times- Hardest Places to Live in the US

This very interesting map, put together by the New York Times, shows by county the hardest places to live based on six areas of evaluation. Each county is analyzed on education (who received a bachelors degree), unemployment rate, household income, disability rate, life expectancy and obesity. The results are colored coded with the dark teal color representing counties doing well, an off-white color representing the average, and orange showing the counties doing the worst. By moving your mouse across the map, you can easily find your area and see where your county stands.
