The states with the largest pay gaps between men and women.(credit)

While this map tells an interesting story, I’d be even more interested to see a county-by-county breakout of this map. I’m curious if urban areas produce a higher gap than suburban than rural. And I’m also curious how the pay gap is impacted by unemployment figures. It is always so tempting to just consume the tidbits of information without the larger landscape. What is the minimum wage in each state? What is the average wage in each state? What is the purchasing power of those wages in each state? What is the incarceration rate in each state? I appreciate the graphic to prompt the questions though.
