Show Us the Jobs!

Some states are doing a better job that others in giving information to the public about the numbers and types of jobs created through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), according to a new report by Good Jobs First. Check out how your state is doing.

Report: States Are Making More Effective Use of Web to Inform Taxpayers About Economic Stimulus Spending

Washington, January 26, 2010—Some states are making dramatic improvements in websites designed to disseminate information about their share of the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), but others are still failing to make effective use of online technology to educate taxpayers about the impact of economic stimulus spending.

This is the finding of Show Us the Stimulus (Again), a report released today by Good Jobs First, a non-profit research center based in Washington, DC. It updates a similar study published by Good Jobs First last July.

The full text of the report as well as state-specific appendices can be found on the Good Jobs First website at
