Bob Horn, our visual scout from MacroMedia, sent us a link to this county-by-county view of unemployement. You can actually see some interesting areas of low unemployment–like North Carolina, New Orleans, parts of Texas, the break basket, etc. I would bet somewhere there is an even more fine grained view that would show disparities within counties.

I met up with Bryce Pearsall in Vancouver BC for the annual Dean’s Forum of the Large Firm Roundtable where I facilitate 15 Large firm partners talking with 15 deans of architectural schools each year. Bryce is Chair this year, and a long-term Grove client with his own architecture/ engineering firm DLR Group (The post before this about DLRU is about his firm). In the context of talking about the economy and the rough time A&E firms are having, he forwarded me a link to a very compelling graphic treatment of job gains and losses in the US over the last 4 years. Click through the whole presentation from the beginning and see the monthly stats change in graphic form. It’s a smart use of graphic language and a pretty shocking picture of what has happened since mid 2008. Click “The Geography of Jobs” to see the map.
