You'll find a wealth of information on the US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics website to help you show the dismal state of the economy in Michigan (or other states) as opposed to the state of economy in the prospective relocation state. The unemployment rates by county are projected on a map and much detailed information is available. Various reports are also available. Here is a good place to start. Note the Michigan state and county map showing loss of employment by county, and access to detailed information. This is a huge website with an incredible amount of information available.
