    10 States With Ridiculously Low Unemployment -- And Why

    Every U.S. state experienced job losses during the recent downturn, but thanks to the right mix of industries, natural resources, and skilled workers, some states have a far lower unemployment rate than the 9.5% national average.

    Want to crack the jobs problem? Let's start by studying these sources of American strength...

    First, a broad look at America's situation

    Unemployment Rate: 9.5%

    The economy: Agriculture (1.2% of GDP), Industry (21.9% of GDP), Services (76.9% of GDP- )
