V-START: County Unemployment by Age

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