Last week’s MetroTrends blogs all delivered new data on economic challenges facing metropolitan America:

  • Graham MacDonald offers a nifty interactive map showing which metros have gained and lost jobs—and in which industries—since the official end of the Great Recession.
  • Greg Mills serves up new evidence that informal supports from family and friends play a critical role in tough economic times.
  • Margaret Simms shows that recent unemployment declines have benefited men—both black and white—more than women.
