Mish Shedlock’s Global Economic Trend Analysis blog already posted our first interactive map/graphic of industry data for every state that we put together with Tableau Software. And here’s Part 2, focusing on job growth and loss from 2008 to 2011.
Here are some of Mish’s comments about the data:
- Since December 2007, the economy has lost 6,318,546 jobs
- In 2011, the big job gainer is not healthcare but “administration”
- Healthcare and Education are the two bright spots throughout the recession.
The 6.3 million jobs lost since the beginning of 2008 is deceptively low. The Economy should have been gaining 1.8 milling jobs a year, not losing jobs. In other words, the economy is down 10 to 12 million jobs from where it should be.
