I like it. It never occurred to me to use colored lines to differentiate rising and falling values in this type of chart. I would suggest sorting by the change instead of the most recent observation, but I suppose it would depend on the point you were trying to make.

It is an interesting format, but as you say “I suppose it would depend on the point you were trying to make”, which begs the question of what is the relevance of long-term versus total unemployment? Isn’t the real goal lower total unemployment? If a country successfully finds work for all truly employable people, the ratio would be 100% – perhaps higher is better.
