Uneven Job Loss Across France

Le Monde today has an interesting map of the level of job loss in the various metropolitan statistical areas (to use US jargon) that make up the French economy. The striking fact is that job loss across the country is very uneven, with the north, east, and center faring particularly badly while the south and west do quite a bit better. It would be interesting to pursue the analysis to a finer level of detail, to try to understand what is going on.
