How has Wichita fared since the start of the pandemic compared to other metropolitan areas?
(These examples are taken from my interactive visualization which holds data on all metropolitan areas in the nation. See Metro area employment and unemployment. It is updated through June 2021.)
The nearby chart shows Wichita along with some nearby metropolitan areas. In terms of creating jobs, some have performed better than Wichita, and some not as well. For the unemployment rate, Wichita has not done as well as most.
As always, you may use the interactive visualization to create your own charts and tables. The link is above.
