Employment and Unemployment by Degree

Here’s an interactive graphic that allows you to plot out unemployment rates by subsets of the population: choose gender, choose race, choose age group, and choose educational level, and it isolates the unemployment rate for that group.

Very cool. Very useful for pointing out stuff like the severe effects on men and the young in the last recession.

This is from a piece in the February 21 issue of The Wall Street Journal  entitled “As Job Market Mends, Dropouts Fall Behind”.
