Unemployment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3754 words)
The unemployment rate is the number of unemployed workers divided by the total civilian labour force, which includes both the unemployed and those with jobs (all those willing and able to work for pay).
The graph shows the official unemployment rate (as a percentage of the labour force) in the United States from 1948 to the present (using data supplied by the Bureau of Labor Statistics).
Voluntary unemployment is blamed on the individual unemployed workers (and their decisions), whereas involuntary unemployment exists because of the socio-economic environment (including the market structure and the level of aggregate demand) in which individuals operate.
