    Map Description

    Job Number Distribution: The statistics in this map is the number of total jobs for each filed in each state. The color represents the percentage of the number of a specific job in one state among the total number of positions of this kind of job in the United States. Darker blue means higher percentage and lighter blue means lower percentage.

    Salary Distribution: The statistics in this map is the average salary of each kind of job in each state. The color represents the ratio between the average salary of a specific job in one state and the total salary of this kind of job in the United States. Darker orange means higher average salary and lighter orange means lower average salary.

    Job Density Distribution: In order to take the population of each state into consideration, there is another map used to reflect the employment rate of a specific filed in each state. For each state, the employment rate is calculated by the total number of employees of a specific field in this state divided by the population in this state. Combining the job distribution map and the employment rate map , we can clearly find out whether the higher job opportunities in the former map is biased or not, say in state A, there are 1000 Computer Programmers, the population is 10000; however in state B, there are 100 Computer Programmers, the population is only 500. It is unreasonable to say that we are more likely to find a job in state A. Therefore, we take both the job distribution and the population statistics into consideration to make a more valuable and convincible result.

    Job Scatter Plot: In order to compare the number of differnt jobs in each state, here is a scatter plot that could enable users to choose different kind of jobs to make a comparision in each state. Users would first choose several fields and then the scatter plot shows the total number of employment in each state, the larger the bubble is, the more jobs there is in that state.

    Salary Scatter Plot: In order to compare the salary level of different jobs in each state, here is a scatter plot that could enable users to choose different knid of jobs to make a comparision in each state. Users would first choose several fields and then the scatter plot shows the salary in each state, the larger the bubble is, the higher salary there is in that state.
