U.S. Unemployment, September 2009

Javascript version of Nathan Yau's How to Make a US County Thematic Map Using Free Tools. See Nathan's excellent tutorial for details of data sources.

This page uses a modified JSON version of Nathan's CSV file with svgweb for rendering. The SVG file was updated to reflect the the consolidated St. Louis, MO FIPS code and to correct the id of Uvalde, TX.

It's beyond the scope of this experiment to map the unemployment data for Puerto Rico but I note that the data is provided and Wikipedia has an SVG map if you need it.
