The Bureau of Labor Statistics has released an interactive map with the functionality to view unemployment rate changes by state, county and metro area. You can view 1 and 12 month net rate change by month and year. The tool also offers the ability to view county and metro area data by selecting a state, time frame and data-view type. Unemployment data at the county level provides unique insight into how different areas are affected by unemployment trends.
