Chart of the Day: Employment by Gender

This comes from Stuart Staniford, and it’s an employment map of the United States by county. Dark areas have high employment and light areas have low employment. Bluish area have relatively high male employment and brownish areas have relatively high female employment.

What does it all mean? Beats me. Basically, it’s just data geekery. But kind of interesting anyway, no? Stuart has more speculation over at his place.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
