Usually, the economy is gauged based on the unemployment rate. This is only one measure of the economic strength of the labor force. This data viz lets you explore the unemployment rate, what percentage of people are part of the labor force, and what percentage of people aren’t in the labor force.
The data for this visualization comes from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2017 American Community Survey 1-year estimates. For more information visit https://census.gov/acs
I used R to pull the ACS estimates from the Census Bureau API and Tableau to create the visualization.
