We wanted to get the global picture of unemployment and so we’ve used data from the Worldbank and CIA Factbook to create some interactive maps. The comparative statistics should be taken with a pinch of salt as different definitions and methodologies may be involved. Either way, it does give you a good idea of how different countries are affected.
