This interactive graph shows the number of unemployed workers in South Dakota on the x axis compared with the size of the workforce on the y axis. The size and color of the markers change to show increases and decreases in the unemployment rate.
The monthly data points take a sharp turn in late 2008/early 2009, as the recession took hold and hit home following Lehman Brothers' filing and the credit crisis.
While comparatively low, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in South Dakota peaked at 5% in May, 2009.
