Interactive Map: What’s Your County’s Unemployment Rate?

July 27th, 2012  |  by  |  Published in Blog, Economic Opportunity


In June, New Jersey’s unemployment rate jumped to 9.6 percent, the highest its been since July 2010. While the statewide rate is now the fourth highest in the nation, much of New Jersey is suffering under even higher rates, as county-by-county June rates released today by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development show.

Almost all of South Jersey’s counties have double-digit unemployment rates, with Cumberland County having the highest in the state (14 percent), while Northwest Jersey is generally faring the best (Hunterdon County has the lowest rate at 7.7 percent).
