I found an interesting little map on CNNMoney.com that allows users to take an interactive look at how their states fare in rates of unemployment, state budget deficit and home foreclosures.
The West leads unemployment at 8+% in California, Oregon and Nevada and Michigan tops the charts at nearly 10%.
State budget deficits are highest in Califonia, Illinois, Georgia and Florida.
And home foreclosures rank highest in Florida and Nevada.
Check out your state to see how it fares in this triple-whammy measure of the economic factors that may be impacting your state. It’s going to help you judge your state’s current situation and how it may be impacting your business.
More importantly, it will help give you a better understanding of where it might be headed, given that most economists are predicting another six months of economic woes before we may see some light.
