If I could redo this visualization, I would try to emphasize the holistic impact on the system of jobs being lost. At the moment, it shows the estimated low-income jobs by category pre county or metro area but I think that it would also be helpful to see how this impacts each county percentage wise. Seeing the number per county is helpful, but it doesn’t show the magnitude of how it affects/decimates each industry. Tying into then COVID-precautions and policy could be interesting too in order to highlight how more strict policies may lead to less of an effect on each industry of a particular county or state.
