Trenton NJ, With the U.S. gaining 916,000 jobs in February and the national unemployment rate at 6% compared to the nearly historic high of 14.7% at the peak during the coronavirus pandemic, WalletHub today released updated rankings for the States Whose Unemployment Rates Are Bouncing Back Most, along with accompanying videos and audio files, to illustrate which areas of the country have had the best recovery so far.

In order to identify the states whose unemployment rates are bouncing back most, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia based on five key metrics that compare unemployment rate statistics from the latest month for which we have data (March 2021) to key dates in 2019 and 2020.

Below, you can see highlights from the report, along with a WalletHub Q&A.

  1. nothing to see here.
    must be due to racism or the bad-orange-man

  2. Thanks to the types found here in Ridgewood – the never Trumpers – would rather vote for corrupt career politician who has enriched himself and his family with political patronage, rather than a self-promoting, crude, bad a** who loves thins country enough to put his own $$$ on the line for the sake of the citizens. A thankless job for anyone, DJT had much to lose and little to personally gain.
