A funky little interactive map from USA Today.  Click on a state on the map and the appropriate little dot on the sorted chart on the right will highlight to show you it’s ranking. When you change the indicator using the drop down box at the top (jobs created/total funds awarded/total funds received/unemployment rate) the dots in the chart all bounce around and resort themselves.

USA Today and IHS Global Insight have created a new USA economic outlook index based on 11 “leading” indicators. The interactive charts are very well done, with roll-over data point info, and an explanation of what each indicator means. Notes at the bottom of the page describe how the methodology differs from the Conference Board’s “leading indicators”. They plan to update it monthly. USAtoday has come a long way from the crappy charts they used to produce (ok, a lot of them are still crappy – but this one’s damn good).

A nice presentation from USA today which shows salary, bonuses, stock options, other compensation. versus stock performance. Also allows you to filter by industry using the tabs at top. Related article.

Not as detailed as say, the Wall Street Journals, but the simpler presentation allows a quick broswing.
