Previously we have shared a US map about the State of Shame that Oregon is the state with largest homeless population that it seems the economic recovery remains distant, especially in some counties. Here is an interactive Oregon map for showing the current unemployment situation by counties.
The map was created based on the data from Oregon Employment Department. According to the map, unemployment situation is most serious in Harney, Grant and Crook countries, where’s unemployment rates were over 12 percent in the previous October; while Benton and Hood River had better employment situation among other countries. You can mouse click the country for seeing the differences of unemployment rate between 2012 & 2013.
The map will be updated each month once new data is available.

This interactive Oregon map is a heat map that missing map legend for indicating region colors. Since I was confused by which colors represent higher employment rates at first, it would be more user-friendly and informative if map legend is added.
