There's an interesting webpage at Google that was stumbled upon the other day when looking for the unemployment rates we heard on the radio last Thursday as we returned from Oregon. Here's what things look like in some of the counties we passed through.
With the exception of Calaveras County where we live now (pop. 46,000) and where we're headed to in Deschutes County (pop. 154,000), these are all in the northern most part of California with Shasta County being the largest (pop. 169,000). Not included in this graphic is Klamath County in Oregon (pop. 67,000) where unemployment is now 17.3 percent.
