V-START: State Unemployment by Age

The State Unemployment by Age dashboard presents veteran unemployment rate distribution across states and age population. Users can compare veteran unemployment against non-veteran unemployment and drill down into states. If interested in specific age populations, users can drill down into pre-defined age ranges to analyze how unemployment varies across states. This information allows users to better understand unemployment conditions in each state and identify areas where veterans struggle the most when transitioning into the civilian workforce.
