Stats of the Union

The Economist recently released an interactive map under the heading "Stats of the Union", featuring several measures of the United States ranging from unemployment rates to measurements of the under-18 population.  At the national level, averages from each state appear underneath the map.  For certain measures, clicking on the desired state will produce a breakdown of the chosen measure.

Along with this map, The Economist summarizes that the unemployment rate has stabilized, with nineteen states recording decreases.  Despite the shrinking national economy (of .1% in last year's fourth quarter), personal income has increased in all states, and all but eight saw increases in their state economy.
