The 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.
