This visualization shows the prediction of when the current recession is going to end for each state. All the states are categorized into four different colors based on the various recession periods. Viewers can easily identify each state's prediction from the color sequence designed for classification. Because red and green are opponent colors of each other, we tend to see the distinction more easily when we process the information in our brain. In addition, shading technique is also used in this visualization to define each area apart from another. It looks like California has one more quarter to go before getting out of this recession.
