The unemployment rate is a key indicator of the health of labor markets

and the overall economy. Go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics website and compare the national unemployment rate trends over the last ten years at https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000. How do those trends compare to the State of Georgia's labor market conditions and specifically the unemployment rate at https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LASST130000000000003 and also information from the Georgia Department of Labor at https://dol.georgia.gov/documents/unemployment-rate-statewide-seasonally-adjusted and over the last year or so at https://dol.georgia.gov/sites/dol.georgia.gov/files/related_files/document/lf_georgia.pdf
Are there any unique characteristics of Georgia's state economy that would explain its variation from the national economic situation? Here is a website that explains the economic comparative advantages the state of Georgia has as a basis for your comparative assessment and further discussion.
