Spanish Unemployment on Google Maps
1 in every 4 Spaniards of working age is unemployed. The situation is particular bad for the young, where over half of those under 30 are unemployed. There are also regional differences in the level of unemployment. In the south-east and north-east of the country the employment market is holding up a little better than the rest of the country.
You can view the regional differences in Spanish unemployment at Mapa del Paro, a series of Google Maps which show the unemployment rate at municipal level. Mapa del Paro has created a number of regional heat maps, each of which shows the current unemployment rate for each municipality in the region.
