Employment of 25-54 yrs vs 55 and over: 2004-2008

Building on Employment of Young vs Old graph, this week I am comparing of the number of employed 25-54 year olds to number of workers above 55. The top graph is the ratio of 25-54 year olds employed for everyone over 55 employed. The second graph shows just the total number employed by age. {Click on the image to take a closer look}

Employment of Young vs Old: 2004-2008

Inspired by last week's graph on Job Loss by Age, I created this 5 year comparison of the number of employed 16-17 year olds to number of workers above 75. There are two methods for measuring 16-17 year olds: not seasonally adjusted and seasonally adjusted which removes the effects of events like summer employment that follow a more or less regular pattern each year. {Click on the image to take a closer look}

North America Income, Education, Employment: 2006

US Population Ancestry

Screenshot from an interactive mapping tool from OECD Regional Statistics. While you can look at any region I choose North America. The color indicates the GDP per capita: blue is low income while red is high income. The graph on the right is comparing % of population with high school education vs unemployment. (The red circle, indicating very high income, belongs to Washington DC) {Click on the image to take a closer look}
