I need a short proposal about examining the determinants of unemployment generally. You can use the yearly average unemployment rate for all 50 states of US over an eight-year period. From 2012 to 2019.That’s four hundred observations. You can have inflation, interest rate, state specific immigration flows, and some other factors you can think up on the RHS of the equation. And it should be run in multiple linear regression, data could be census or where ever it could be selected. Need a healthy explanation of the topic: your proposed Y and X's, expected empirical relationships, and the central idea of your study.  And the data resources where it be selected.
