NJPP’s unemployment rates by county

NJPP’s unemployment rates by county

New Jersey Policy Perspective has published a map that shows unemployment rates by county in the state. Though the state unemployment rate was at 9.6 percent, what is striking is that the map shows 11 of 21 counties with unemployment rates above 10 percent — seven of which are above 11 percent. Six counties, most of them in the northwestern part of the state, are below 9 percent (Morris, Warren and Hunterdon are below 8 percent).
