Great Graphic: Unemployment by State

Here is a Great Graphic from the Department of Labor.  The improvement is uneven for sure and appears tied to industry representation.  For example, manufacturing in Michigan and Ohio help those states stand out.  Of the net 4.4 mln private sector jobs that have been created over past 28 months, manufacturing has accounted for nearly half a million.  This is the strongest job creation in manufacturing since 1995.   As we have noted, one way this recovery stands out is that in the state and local governments continue to shed workers.  In the past, those jobs were added.
