Surveying the Recession Upon Utah's Counties

In his recent Trendlines magazine article, economist Mark Knold writes about the effect of the recession on Utah's counties:

The Great Recession has taken its toll upon Utah's economy.  Job counts are rebounding across the state but still remain below their peak level prior to the recession.  Utah is starting to add jobs back to its rolls, with many counties seeing employment increasing.  But several counties are noted as having multiple years of employment declines that have not yet reversed themselves.

These are mostly rural counties and include Box Elder, Carbon, Emery, Iron, Juab, Morgan, Piute, Rich, Sanpete, Washington, and Weber.  Some of these counties look like their employment levels have bottomed out -- they just haven't started to rebound yet.  Others look like they are still trending downward.
