|How Do Americans Feel About The Recession?
Earlier this year, the National Bureau of Economic Research delivered a piece of news that came as a surprise to most Americans: the recession, it determined, had officially ended in June 2009. At a total of 18 months, it now has dubious honor of being the longest U.S. recession since the Great Depression.
But how do Americans feel about it? Do the millions unemployed individuals feel like it really is over? And how do people – employed and unemployed – feel about its aftermath? mint.com compiled the answers those questions, and more, in their latest infographic.

|CQ Economy Tracker
A massive data visualization tool that lets users find out how the U.S. economy is performing, including breakouts on jobs, house prices, inflation and income. The visualization was designed & developed by the editorial multimedia team of CQ-Roll Call Group, the premier political news and information provider covering congress.
The data is collected from government and non-government sources; the interactive shows all historical data and is updated live as new data is released. It also features a glossary with sources and descriptions of the data and the data is available for download in Excel format. We think it’s the first interactive tool of its kind to pair up this much national and regional/state data side-by-side. It’s hooked up to a database and was built in Flash. All of the components, including the graphing and mapping portions, were custom built and are fully reusable APIs.
