The unemployment rate by US state measures the share of the labor force that is jobless in each US state. This is indicative of GDP levels and long-term economic health.
The data shows autocorrection and a non-normal distribution. The data should be differenced. While the Order Norm transformation, provides the best normality, the Boxcox variable will also perform well.
Data is unable to be distributed by time or geography. The roll up method used is Weighted Average.

Data shows autocorrectation indicating a need for differencing
The ACF indicates 1 order differencing is appropriate.
Further differencing is reccommended
The Kwiatkowski-Phillips-Schmidt-Shin (KPSS) test, KPSS Trend = 0.52 p-value = 0.01 indicates that the data is not stationary.
The Shapiro-Wilk test returned W = 0.83 with a p-value =0.00 indicating the data does not follow a normal distribution.
A skewness score of 0.58 indicates the data are moderately skewed.
Hartigan's dip test score of 0.08 with a p-value of 0.00 inidcates the data is multimodal
