In 2021 I tried to create a data application in R using Java-style object-oriented programming. It worked, but there was a problem…

In this post I take a look at the new September 2020 state-level employment data provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and find a complex and tenuous jobs recovery in America. I share some of the most interesting numbers in original graphs.

This is my first look at the state-level and local-level data provided by the BLS, and was done using original data tools that can process and manage large multi-dimensional time series datasets.
