Cities Whose Unemployment Rates Are Bouncing Back Most
Wallet Hub, Apr 27, 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic was disastrous for U.S. employment, but the job market has healed a lot due to the distribution of the vaccine and the loosening of most restrictions. The national unemployment rate is currently at 3.6%, which is 76% lower than the peak of 14.7% during the height of the pandemic, but still slightly above the historic low it experienced prior to the coronavirus crisis. Some cities’ jobs have weathered the storm better than others, though.
In order to identify where workers have been most affected by the coronavirus pandemic, WalletHub compared 180 cities based on five key metrics. They looked at the change in each city’s unemployment during the latest month for which we have data (March 2022) compared to March 2019, March 2020, March 2021 and January 2020. They also considered each city’s overall unemployment rate.
