This is a companion peice to Kathy Fettke's peice today titled: "Where the Jobs Are"

This is the second part of a two-part interactive map series on jobs. For part one, please see Interactive Map: Employment History Since 2001 by Job Type (Healthcare, Education, Mining, Construction, Finance, Real Estate, etc)

Part two has a focus on job creation and losses during the economic recovery. Please consider the following interactive map, using Tableau Software, with data courtesy of Economic Modeling Specialists.

In a previous article I noted that when it comes to jobs, this is the weakest recovery ever except for health-care.

On a percentage basis mining has been a big winner. In absolute terms, however, healthcare was the biggest winner. Mining and oil added few total jobs.

This interactive map may take a bit to load. Please give it time on a slow connection.
