To read individual comments, click on the map markers

The BBC is Taking the Pulse of the UK economy. How are you being affected?

Two-thirds of people across the UK know someone personally who has lost a job in the recession, a BBC poll has found.

But while concerns about employment may be increasing, most people believe the worst may be over - despite believing the economic situation remains tough.

We want to hear your experiences. Are you seeing signs of recovery? Or do you think the recession is still biting? Add your comment using the link below the map.

You can also have a go at describing in three words only what the first signs of economic recovery will be for you.
