Chart Of The Day

JobCreation

Avent passes along a chart (click to enlarge) showing where jobs were created in 2010:

As you can (hopefully) see, Texas leads the pack. About a fifth of all new jobs were created there last year. About half of net new jobs were produced by the top 6 states, and about 80% were produced in the top 15. New Jersey had the biggest job loss, followed by Nevada. New Jersey's job losses were almost entirely due to cuts in government employment.
