Here's a map of job creation from The Gallup Organization. It's based on approximately 100,000 Gallup Daily tracking interviews
conducted throughout 2009 with employed adults in all 50 states plus
the District of Columbia. It provides a clear picture of the evolving
economic geography of The Great Reset.
On the losing side of job creation, the Rustbelt states, especially
Michigan and less so Minnesota, continue to be hard hit, along with the
"housing-crash" states of Nevada, California, and Arizona. Northeastern
states--Rhode Island, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, and New
Hampshire--also fare poorly. In the west, Oregon and Idaho also see
low rates of job creation.
The best-performing states in terms of job creation are energy economies--North Dakota, Louisiana, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas, Alaska, and New Mexico, as well as Nebraska; and those with economies that benefit from federal spending are Maryland, Virginia, and D.C. More here.
