Change in Minnesota's Unemployment Rate by the Party of the Governor



Description: This graph shows the annual changes in the unemployment rate in Minnesota since 1977 split out by the political party of the Governor. The results are cumulative, as if the years in which each party controlled the governorship occurred back-to-back. The graph shows the unemployment rate under Democratic governors falling nearly 3 points below zero. Of course, that is impossible, but in reality those additional three points were used up by counteracting the increase in unemployment under Republican governors.
