This data should be updated - it a great website but the UE rate is from 2006 - that is absurd the BLS has monthly data and it is free

I believe that Illinois should be somewhere in the top 3 of the most unemployed, taxed and in overall the worst U.S. states to live in... i like the website but it would be nice to update it once in a while...

This is June 2011, please update this site. It would be a great site, if it was factual.

This site is B.S.! It's not even updated regularly! This site states that Puerto Rico has an unemployment rate of 9.2%. This is from 2006! Department of labor statistic states it is 15.7% as of DECEMBER 2010!!!!!!!!! UPDATE UPDATE, UPDATE!!!
