by | Jun 4, 2021

REDLANDS, Calif.-Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, announced today that UnemploymentPulse, a new app built with ArcGIS Platform, lets you explore 14 months of unemployment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics as spark lines in each state and county against the national average. Inspired by the COVIDPulse app, this mapping app lets you compare the difference over time between local and national rates and provides insights about the current labor force in each state and county.

You can click on an area for detailed stats about the labor force, trend lines over the last 14-months, highs and lows during that time, and the state or county's relative rank. You can also access countrywide rankings that report the states and counties with the highest and lowest unemployment rates for the most recent month of data.

The app is updated each month as new data becomes available. The app will be updated with data for April, 2021, on June 2nd.

You can embed this app into your site with the following code:

You can also customize this app to focus on any state or county with URL parameters. For example, you can focus the app on King County, Washington with this URL:,47.366,9
