Where would I find statistical info on

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Where would I find statistical info on
By Dana on Thursday, December 11, 2008 - 04:32 pm:

areas of US that have been hit the hardest and those areas doing better than others in today's economy.

This morning I heard a comment on GMA they are featuring a job fair in Southern FL. They then stated that FL is "statistically the hardest hit state."

Now I have watched friend after friend loose their job...3 in one week just a few weeks ago. I know things are really tough, and I know things are really tough everywhere. But if FL is deamed "one of the hardest hit" I want to know which area is faring the best. How would I find this out?

I'm not looking for deep details just the answer to "FL is the worst, ID is the best" (I'm just sticking states in the blanks.)

Thanks so much. I haven't looked at your links yet. How did you find them? What was your search phrase or did you already have this info?

By Dana on Thursday, December 11, 2008 - 05:33 pm:

Perfect! That is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much!

Dana, while not statistical, I can tell you South Florida is definitely being hit hard. I have been here 2 months, and haven't had even a callback on a job... not even from the 7/11 up the road. I am pretty much willing to take anything, either first shift or overnight (because I don't have daycare in the evenings) and can't find ANYTHING. :(

It's all kinda scary, isn't it?

By Dana on Friday, December 12, 2008 - 07:30 am:

Crystal, where in FL are you? I didn't know you were in my state. Obviously it was a recent move in the last two months, LOL.

By Crystal915 on Friday, December 12, 2008 - 11:06 am:

West Palm Beach, we moved here in mid-Oct, because of the economy, and to be closer to family.

By Colette on Friday, December 12, 2008 - 05:15 pm:

I think I typed in "states hit the worse by recession" or something like that into google.

By Tink on Friday, December 12, 2008 - 06:29 pm:

Lovely, the #1 city is about 45 minutes north of me. I'm so thankful that my dh and I have a decent amount of job stability. I know of 6 people who've been laid off in the last two weeks.
