Tracking Economic Woes, From Cities to Housing to Family Income
We take a broad look at the nation's economic woes on Tuesday's NewsHour -- troubles ranging from unemployment to housing to household incomes.
Patchwork Nation has been examining much of this data in recent months. Project director Dante Chinni will join Christopher Hoene from the National League of Cities and Howard Wial of the Brookings Institution to talk about what the latest numbers tell us about the how troubled the economy really is.
The maps below examine several of these economic trends through the lens of Patchwork's 12 county types.
