The article examines the impact of the recessionary economy of the U.S. on the migration in Alaska as of June 2009. When the national recession has driven the U.S. unemployment rate above 7%, it says that Alaska's population gains from migration have likewise increased. Since Alaska has not seen the kind of job losses the country has suffered, it notes that the increase in unemployment is coming mostly from another source.
