500 months of unemployment

512 months actually.  This is mostly a test, so comments appreciated on whether this works.  Below ought to be an interactive graphic of the Pittsburgh region's unemployment back to 1970.  If the embed does not work it can be seen via this link directly.

update:  my embed is doing funky things.. but still appreciate comment on what people see via direct link.

Why is the graph entitled, "Total Passenger Enplanements"? I thought the post was about unemployment.

As an aside, I noticed that the September PEQ ran the same two bar graphs on page three, with two different titles, but I'll look it up on the PghTODAY website.

Great plotting! Maybe put links into the highs and lows explaining the events leading to those numbers...

Nice how you can zoom into specific timelines to get more details.Amazing how little Pittsburgh was affected by the bubble burst or by 9/11

Works well using direct link on iPhone 5 (iOS 6). Very cool. Now, can you please fix how maddening posting comments using iOS 6 has become?

Yea low-resolution security codes on auto-completing mobile devices sucks hard.
