Source: eBay Classifieds eBay Classifieds created a hot jobs map of the United States that shows which states in America are the best to find employment. Their reports show that 190,000 new jobs were created in February, and eBay Classifieds, who are all about helping peopleÂ find jobs, show where these are.
The research to create theÂ map looked at personal income per capita, unemployment rates, and crime rates in each state to determine which states have the most buoyant economies in this still very difficult economic climate. eBay Classifieds then researched the largest occupations and the fastest growing occupations in each state. It then found which cities had the largest median salary in each state to determine which industries were the best for finding a job.
- New Hampshire: New HampshireÂ has the lowest crime rates in the country, the 4th lowest unemployment rates, and the 9th highest personal income per capita, making it the most economically buoyant state in the country.
- New York: New York Cityâ€™s median salary,Â $64,535, is lower than 10 other statesâ€™ highest median salaries.
- Connecticut: ConnecticutÂ has the highest personal income per capita in the country, atÂ $56,556.
- Maryland: Fans of The Wire will be unsurprised to learn that although parts ofÂ MarylandÂ are very wealthy, the state has the 7th highest crime rates in the country.
- Rhode Island: Rhode IslandÂ has the 15th highest personal income per capita figures, as well as 18th lowest crime rates, but its high unemployment figures (46th) keep it in the middle of the pack.
- California: Sunnyvale, CA, has the highest median salary of all the statesâ€™ highest paying cities, butCaliforniaâ€™s high unemployment rates (12.9%, or 3.1% higher than the national average) means itâ€™s not as economically buoyant overall as other states.
- South Carolina: South CarolinaÂ has the fifth highest unemployment rates, the third highest crime rates, and the fourth lowest per capita income. Still, its city with the highest median income,Â Aiken, has a higher median income than 18 other statesâ€™.
About the research
Several figures were used to determine the economic status of each state. It is important to note that Washington, D.C.Â is not included in the infographic because certain figures were not available for the city.
Per Capita Personal Income: The seasonally adjusted personal income for each state was found in theÂ State Personal Income: Third Quarter 2010 report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. That report detailed the personal income for each state, but to determine the PER CAPITA personal income, that number was divided by the estimated population in 2010, as reported in theÂ US Census Bureau report.
Crime Rates: The crime rates were from CQ Pressâ€™s rankings of states based on crime rates.
Industries with Largest Employment and Fastest Growing Occupations by State: Americaâ€™s Career InfoNetâ€™s CareerOneStop, which is sponsored by the US Department of Labor, outlines the top occupations and the fastest growing occupations in each state.
Average Median Salary: PayScale has the data about the highest average median salary in each state.
