Job visualization

Andrew Van Dam and Renee Lightner of the Wall Street Journal have developed a pair of interactive data visualizations showing the rise and fall of unemployment rates since 1948—the first year with official data. Users can manipulate the visualizations to show the monthly changes in job count and percentage across 20 sectors, as well as overlay timelines of recessions to see how the job market was impacted.

Take a look.
