State-By-State Stimulus Job Creation Estimates

4793929With President Obama poised to sign the $787 billion economic stimulus package into law this afternoon, the White House has released its estimates of how many jobs the package will create in each state.

The big winner appears to be California, which the White House says will see a "jobs impact" of 396,000. (The state sure could use the help.) Texas (with 269,000 jobs predicted), New York (with 215,000 jobs predicted) and Florida (with 206,000 jobs predicted) also fare well.

Less populous states see far less impact: Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming are each only predicted to see a "jobs impact" of 8,000. To see how your state fares in the estimates, click here. (PDF)

The White House also broke down the jobs numbers by Congressional district. In addition, it put out fact sheets on the bill's impact on education, energy, health care and infrustructure, as well as its overview of the bill and estimates of its impact on working families. (All docs PDF.)
