Massachussetts did not submit jobs data. Either that or they're just between millions of jobs right now. (via Robert Manduca)

If you like maps and data, you're really going to enjoy this project created by Harvard PhD student Robert Manduca. Inspired by the viral maps that used the 2010 Census to show every person in America as a dot color-coded by race (which showed how separately we still live in the 21st Century), Manduca used the 2010 Census data to create a color-coded, interactive map of every single job in America. For reasons that escape me (having to do with the Census itself), Massachussetts was not included in this extended data set. Also not shown are a lot of green dots that should be there, but aren't for security clearance reasons. More on that later.
