Interactive Map Shows The Most Common Jobs In The US From 1978 To 2014


Ever wondered which are the most common jobs people held in each state of the U.S.?

NPR’s Planet Money has created an interactive map based on data provided from the Census Bureau and IPUMS-CPS/University Of Minnesota.

The map will take you on a fascinating view of how the country drifted away from secretarial jobs and into trucking professions.

Head over here for a close-up view of the interactive map.
