Washington CNN  — 

President Barack Obama, the 44th commander in chief of the United States, caps off eight years in office on January 20.

Those eight years saw the nation grapple with the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression. The country’s response to that crisis helped reshape the economy and the makeup of the political system a few times over. And for every day of those eight years, the nation was at war – on multiple fronts, against multiple groups for multiple purposes.

All of these momentous changes during Obama’s presidency had very real effects on people across the country and the globe. And for each of these real-world impacts, there is a number.

CNN Money has charted the Obama economy while The New York Times has explored 2016 in numbers. Here, 44 statistics open a window to the 44th President’s expansive impact.

1. Unemployment

The recession cost many people their livelihood. The following years saw many of those same people gain it back. While part of the drop in unemployment came from people leaving the workforce, enough people have jobs now that, statistically speaking, employment has recovered from the darkest days of the economic crisis.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ seasonally adjusted unemployment rate:

  • When Obama came into office during January 2009, the unemployment rate was 7.8%.
  • The highest point in the data set came in October 2009, when unemployment hit double digits at an even 10%.
  • The final unemployment report under Obama put the unemployment rate at 4.7% for December 2016.

2. Oil

Due in part to a revolution in domestic fossil fuels and massive oil production overseas, oil and gas have been pretty cheap for some of Obama’s presidency.

Here’s what the situation looks like.

3. The stock market

Following years of upward climb and a rally after President-elect Donald Trump’s electoral victory, stocks are near record highs.

Here’s stock market performance as of January 3, 2017:

4. Down-ballot races

Obama’s election coincided with Democratic victories across the nation and the strong 2008 showing built on the party’s successes in 2006. But as the years went on, the situation virtually reversed itself. Obama will exit office with the Republican Party resurgent on the state and federal levels.

Here’s the breakdown for state government, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures:

Here’s the breakdown for the US Congress, according to the Senate and House of Representatives.

5. Opioid crisis

Deaths from opioid-related overdose deaths have been on the rise. More people are dying from overdoses on heroin and prescription pain medicine like oxycodone and fentanyl.

The National Center on Health Statistics and CDC WONDER report the number of opioid-related overdose deaths nationwide:

6. Pot laws

States with legal marijuana or cannabis products have blossomed under Obama. When he took office, recreational marijuana wasn’t legal in any state.

Here’s what marijuana legalization looks like now, with information compiled by CNN Health:

  • Recreational: 8 states + the District of Columbia
  • Medical: 19 states
  • Medical CBD: 11 states

7. Medicaid expansion

The Affordable Care Act set aside funding for states to expand Medicaid – a government health care program for the poorest Americans. But the process became something of a tussle with state governments and many of their Republican leaders. By the end of Obama’s presidency, only the slim majority of states had opted to expand Medicaid.

The District of Columbia and 31 states expanded Medicaid, per the Kaiser Family Foundation.

8. Insurance coverage

As the economy recovered and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, reformed the health care market, more people had health insurance coverage.

Here’s the total percentage of people without insurance, according to the US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey:

9. National debt

By the end of Obama’s presidency, government debt had nearly doubled to about $20 trillion.

To be specific, the Treasury Department as of January 13, 2017, pegged the total public debt outstanding at $19,940,614,376,504.40.

10. Deportation

Trump said during his campaign that he’d create a special force to deport undocumented immigrants. Although Obama criticized Trump’s immigration proposals, he detained and deported millions of men, women and children. Obama’s administration deported the most people – 434,015 – in 2013.

Here are total “removals” of people according to the Department of Homeland Security’s 2015 yearbook of immigration statistics (the most recent year for which data are available):

11. Interest rates and inflation

The Federal Reserve increased its interest rate by .25% in December 2016 for the second time since the financial crisis. The rates had been cut to zero in 2008. Many were concerned the Fed’s easy money policies would cause inflation to skyrocket. Instead, inflation hasn’t risen by much yet for years.

Here’s the rate of inflation, per the Minneapolis Fed.

12. The car industry

General Motors (GM) was down to 75 cents a share in May 2009.

As of January 3, 2017, GM’s stock was up to $35.15.

13. Inequality

The US has grown more unequal over the past few decades, including the past eight years.

One commonly cited measure is the Gini index. The number ranges from zero to 1, and the higher the Gini index is, the more unequal the distribution of income is.

According to the Census, it was .469 in 2009 and .4817 in 2017.

Another way to look at it comes from a recent study by economists Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman.

The bottom half of earners have seen their pre-tax incomes fall while the highest earners have seen a fairly steady rise.

14. Wage gap

Debate abounds over how and why incomes vary by gender and whether the wage gap can fairly be said to exist. However, men and women, as well as people of different races, all have much different pay.

Here are the median weekly earnings for employed, full-time wage and salary workers in 2015, with an overall average of $809, per the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

15. Economic growth

Following the dips in growth that marked the recession, the economy slowly and steadily rebounded. Many, including Trump, have said observed rates of growth are far too low.

Here’s annual GDP growth, from the World Bank:

16. Bills vetoed and signed

During Obama’s tenure, he vetoed a total of 12 bills. Only one of those vetoes, the bill that would allow the families of those killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to sue Saudi Arabia for any role in the plot, was overridden by Congress and passed into law.

Since 2009, 1,294 bills were signed into law that dealt with everything from the economy to foreign policy to health care, according to GovTrack.

17. Homeless veterans

The Obama administration put forth “an aggressive strategy to end veteran homelessness” in 2010 as part of its overall plan to combat homelessness in the US. The White House reports overall veteran homelessness decreased by 36% since 2010. There have been about 90,000 vouchers from 2008-16 to help house homeless vets, according to the Military Times.

18. Violent crimes

From 2014-15, the nation saw a 3.9% increase in the estimated number of violent crimes – the FBI released its annual report for 2015 that said there were an estimated 1,197,704 violent crimes committed.

19. Hate crimes

Hate crime incidents in the US neared 6,000 in both 2013 and 2015.

  • 2015: 5,850 incidents, 6,885 offenses
  • 2014: 5,479 incidents, 6,418 offenses
  • 2013: 5,928 incidents, involving 6,933
  • 2012: 5,796 incidents, 6,718 offenses
