Crying WomanThe Washington Post has published in their online Breaking News an "Interactive Map of Unemployment by County". 

The national unemployment rate for July, 2010 was 9.7%.  For example, in Michigan one of the counties with the highest unemployment rate was Alcona County at 18.4%.  The lowest in the state was Mackinaw County at 6.0%.  My home county of Oakland was at 13.5%. 

You get all this information by just hovering your mouse over the county you select. So look up yours and hopefully you won't feel like the lady on the left.

Depressing stats. I see Macomb is at 15.3% and Wayne at 16.5%. That's a lot of people.

Terrible.  I guess that's considered long-term economic "down-turn".  To do the Washingon Post one better the WSJ has an interactive map on their website that has August's unemployment figures.
