An interactive visualization of employment in the states.
I’ve gathered employment data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis is an agency of the United States Department of Commerce, for the states and present it in an interactive visualization using Tableau Public. In the visualization you may use several different presentations of the data and filter for specific industries. The series are presented as the percentage change since the first values, so that relative growth, rather than magnitude, of employment is shown.
The nearby example from the visualization shows growth in private nonfarm employment, with Kansas emphasized against the other states.
