Portland Unemployment 2007 to 2017

This plot shows the unemployment rate for the Portland-Hillsboro-Vancouver area (in Oregon and Washington State) from January 2007 through February 2017. I want to answer the questions - How has Portland's unemployment rate changed over the last ten years and how does it compare to the national unemployment rate? Additionally, I'd like to see how well this metric follows the S&P 500 Index and the Housing Price Index.
