Where are the lowest unemployment rates for African Americans? Massachusetts and Virginia, both at 3.8 percent.. Nebraska had the highest Hispanic state unemployment rate at 5.9 percent. Connecticut came up next with a 5.7 percent rate. Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Washington state all had rates of 5.6 percent. The Hispanic unemployment rate was lower than the rates for whites in two states: In Colorado, Hispanic workers unemployment rate was 2.3 percent, and the rate for white workers, 2.9 percent; while in Georgia, Hispanic workers unemployment rate was slightly lower than whites, at 2.8 percent compared to 3 percent for white workers. (Hispanic unemployment rate estimates are available for 24 states and the District of Columbia.). West Virginia has the highest unemployment rate for whites at 5 percent; the lowest is Hawaiis 1.2 percent. In September, the national unemployment rate was 3.7 percent, down from 4 percent at the end of the second quarter of 2018. Nationally in the third quarter of ...
In addition to the national tables, we analyzed state data in seven large states (California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas). In 2002, these seven states had slightly less than half of all the long-term unemployed workers in the nation. Except for Florida and Texas, all have above-average state unemployment rates.. Some general observations can be made about these seven states. First, workers in these large states are more likely to be long-term unemployed than workers in the rest of the nation. Moreover, these states have all experienced substantial increases in long-term unemployment; New Jersey saw long-term unemployment increase by 27,000 workers between 2000 and 2002, while California saw long-term unemployment increase by 120,000 workers during the same period. To compare these states, we also present the proportion of jobless college graduates and black workers who have been out of work for more than six months. On a national level, these two groups happen ...
This paper examines the relation between unemployment and CVD mortality in European Union countries during the first decade of the 21st century. Two separate studies are summarized, focusing on increased heart disease and stroke mortality rates as potential outcomes of the greatly extended unemployment rate during 2000 - 2010 and especially the Great Recession of 2007 - 2009. Unemployment rates and mortality from two cardiovascular illnesses are viewed in pooled cross-sectional analyses over the range of EU countries. In addition to the unemployment rate, other economic variables, expressing the Recession, are studied in relation to cardiovascular mortality over multiple years in a pooled cross-sectional time-series analysis with random effects. The principal finding is that increases in the unemployment rate are related to increased heart disease and stroke mortality. Controlling for other labour market variables, such as labour force participation, as well as gross domestic product (GDP) per capita
When the District metro area is taken into consideration, the unemployment rate is approximately 3.9 percent. Comparable metros such as Boston, New York City and Atlanta, have unemployment rates of 3.5 percent, 4.6 percent and 5.3 percent, respectively.. In real economies, people commute across state lines, and for the metropolitan area the unemployment rate is actually substantially lower than the national average. Its 3.9 percent, and its actually one of the better labor markets if you look at the entire metro area, Hanson said.. Hanson added that the unemployment rate within the District tends to be higher due to the low-income populations living within the city and not in the surrounding metro area.. What makes it slightly worse in the city as opposed to the entire metro area is that the population is a little bit lower income, is a little bit less educated and has a bit harder time finding work compared to the broader metro area, Hanson said.. Hanson also suggested that reducing the ...
Unemployment Rate in Gambia is expected to be 29.60 percent by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. In the long-term, the Gambia Unemployment Rate is projected to trend around 15.00 percent in 2020, according to our econometric models. In Gambia, the unemployment rate measures the number of people actively looking for a job as a percentage of the labour force. This page provides the latest reported value for - Gambia Unemployment Rate - plus previous releases, historical high and low, short-term forecast and long-term prediction, economic calendar, survey consensus and news.

The article includes an analysis of differences in attitudes towards work in conditions of imprisonment and among employed and long-term unemployed men not detained in prison.The results of the analysis showed a moderate interaction effect of the factors: imprisonment and unemployment (F (1.407) = 6.16, p <0.05, Eta 2 = 0.36). It turned out that the environment of prison isolation and unemployment are mutually related, and the least favorable attitudes towards were shown by the men serving imprisonment sentence, having at the same time no employment opportunities.
Introduction: Unemployment cause poor health and poor health leads to unemployment. Those who are sedentary and experience unemployment may also experience negative effects on their physical and mental health such as obesity followed by cardiac illness, reduced muscle strength, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. All these factors can be categorised under physical and mental health, which are the essential factors for an optimal work ability.. Methods: Our methods were to assess seven subjects (n = 7) of three male and four females, with the mean age of 35 ± 10 (25-54), who were all sedentary and long-term unemployed. These subjects were all part of a project organised by Halmstad Fastighet AB-Bureau (HFAB-Bureau) were they were undergoing education, coaching for employment and learning to apply for job. Our part in this project was to provide eight weeks of physical training to the subjects to reinforce their physical health which in turn supposed to improve their mental health. They were ...
Data & statistics on Youth Unemployment Rate by State: US Unemployment Rate, Annex table 8: Youth unemployment indicators, Total and youth unemployment rates (%), 1Q09...
Neighbourhood unemployment was used as an indicator of area deprivation in all studies. Although it was measured in essentially the same way in most countries the utility of unemployment as a marker of the area features directly relevant to health may differ between countries. We assessed the correlation coefficients between neighbourhood unemployment and other indicators of neighbourhood deprivation in all countries. Neighbourhood unemployment correlated inversely with neighbourhood income (−0.51,r,−0.77, p,0.01) in all studies with available data (all but Whitehall II) and with the percentage owner occupied dwellings (−0.43,r,−0.79, p,0.01) (available in all studies but Madrid), although the second association was not significant for Turin. Although these correlations suggest that unemployment is related to other measures of area deprivation in a similar direction in all countries, there may be differences in the country specific environmental correlates of area unemployment. Inclusion ...
Three types of unemployment can be distinguished by their causes. Frictional unemployment is the normal churning of the job market; people enter the labor force from school or home, and spend time looking for the best job. Most frictional unemployment is voluntary and is desirable to keep the economy working. Seasonal unemployment refers to jobs that operate at certain seasons, such as construction and tourism industries. Because teachers are paid during summer vacation, they are not counted as unemployed in the summertime. The normal unemployment rate (frictional plus seasonal) is about 3% to 4%. Unemployment insurance is designed to help people smooth over their financial needs during frictional and seasonal unemployment. Structural unemployment is much more serious. It means a mis-match of jobs and workers. For example, there may be jobs in the cities and unemployment in mining or logging areas, but people are reluctant to move because of family ties. There may be jobs available in some ...
Dear Representative: On behalf of the National Education Associations (NEA) 3.2 million members, we again urge your support for legislation that would extend unemployment benefits for workers who have exhausted their regular unemployment benefits. We were disappointed that the House failed to pass this legislation earlier this week under suspension of the rules. Votes associated with this issue may be included in the NEA Legislative Report Card for the 110th Congress.. For five consecutive months, the U.S. economy has lost jobs, for a total loss of over 300,000 jobs. Just last month, the unemployment rate saw its biggest one-month increase in over 20 years. Currently, over 1.5 million workers are long-term unemployed, meaning they have been jobless for over six months.. Long-term unemployed individuals receive neither a paycheck nor unemployment benefits. And, rising gas and food prices are making it even harder for them to meet their families even most basic needs. Extension of the ...
Downloadable! While many commentators perceive unemployment to be a key risk factor for intimate partner violence, the empirical evidence remains limited. We combine individual-level data from the British Crime Survey (BCS) with local labor market data to estimate the effects of total and gender-specific unemployment rates on domestic violence. The analysis uses the substantial variation in the increase in unemployment across areas, gender, and age-groups associated with the onset of the latest recession. Our main specification links a womans risk of being abused to the unemployment rate among females and males in her local area and age group. Our results suggest that male and female unemployment have opposite-signed effects on domestic violence: while female unemployment increases the risk abuse, unemployment among males has the opposite effect. The result is shown to be robust to the inclusion of a wide set of control and also remains when we instrument for male and female unemployment using shift
The labor force participation rate remained stuck at 64.2%, hence the increase in the unemployment rate to 9% from 8.8% is interesting. Usually youd expect in recovery for more people to flood back into the job market seeking work, which is why the unemployment rate rising would not necessarily be a bad thing. However that was not the case in April. A more typical 66-67% labor force participation rate would add a few % to the unemployment rate ...
Albany, NY (March 10, 2015) - The New York State Department of Labor today released preliminary local area unemployment rates for January 2015. Rates are calculated following procedures prescribed by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The states unemployment rate relies in part on the results of the Current Population Survey, which contacts approximately 3,100 households in New York State each month. The states private sector job count increased by 150,800 from January 2014 to January 2015. In January 2015, the number of private sector jobs in the state was 7,733,100, an all-time high. The states private sector job count is based on a payroll survey of 18,000 New York employers conducted by the U.S. Department of Labors Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition, the states seasonally adjusted unemployment rate remained unchanged at 5.8% in January 2015, its lowest level since September 2008. ...
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said in Illinois on Monday that he was not concerned about the unemployment rate because it wasnt the governments duty to create jobs.. We need a candidate whos going to be a fighter for freedom, he said during a campaign speech, who is going to get up and make that the central theme in this race because it is the central theme in this race. I dont care what the unemployment rates going to be, he continued. Doesnt matter to me. My campaign doesnt hinge on unemployment rates and growth rates. Its something more foundational thats going on. We have one nominee who says he wants to run the economy. What kind of conservative says that the president runs the economy? What conservative says Im the guy, because of my economic experience, that can create jobs? I dont know. We conservatives generally think that government doesnt create jobs. That what government does is create an atmosphere for jobs to be created in the private ...
Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 223,000 in May, and the unemployment rate edged down to 3.8 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment continued to trend up in several industries, including retail trade, health care, and construction.. Household Survey Data. The unemployment rate edged down to 3.8 percent in May, and the number of unemployed persons declined to 6.1 million. Over the year, the unemployment rate was down by 0.5 percentage point, and the number of unemployed persons declined by 772,000.. Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (3.5 percent), Blacks (5.9 percent), and Asians (2.1 percent) decreased in May. The jobless rates for adult women (3.3 percent), teenagers (12.8 percent), Whites (3.5 percent), and Hispanics (4.9 percent) changed little over the month.. The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 1.2 million in May and accounted for 19.4 percent of the ...
A major benefit of education is the lower risk of unemployment at higher educational levels. In PSID (Panel Study of Income Dynamics) data on the male labor force1 the reduction of the incidence of unemployment is found to be far more important than the reduced duration of unemployment in creating the educational differentials in unemployment rates. In turn, the lesser unemployment incidence of the more educated workers is, in about equal measure, due to their greater attachment to the firms employing them, and to the lesser risk of becoming unemployed when separated from the firm. The lesser frequency of job turnover of more educated workers, which creates fewer episodes of unemployment, is in large part attributable to more on-the-job training. In explaining the lesser conditional unemployment of educated workers and the somewhat shorter duration of their unemployment, indirect evidence is provided that (1) costs of on-the-job search for new employment relative to costs of searching while ...
Downloadable! There are few studies on unemployment duration in developing countries. This is the first study on duration aspect of unemployment in Turkey. We use the results of the Household Labor Force Surveys of 2000 and 2001 to construct a cross-section of durations of unemployment spells. We analyze the determinants of probability of leaving unemployment or the hazard rate. The effects of the personal and household characteristics and the local labor market conditions are examined. Non-Parametric and parametric estimation methods are used, controlling for the unobserved heterogeneity. Two alternative definitions of unemployment are considered. The analyses are carried out for men and women separately. Our results indicate that women are experiencing higher unemployment durations then men. Age has a negative and education has a positive effect on the hazard rate. The effect of the local unemployment rate is large and negative. Duration dependence of the exit rate from unemployment is different for
This PPI fact sheet highlights the employment and unemployment situation for persons aged 55 and older as of December 2009. The unemployment rate for the total aged 16+ remained unchanged at 10 percent. However, 29,000 more persons aged 55 and over were unemployed in December than in November, bringing the total unemployment rate for this group up to 7.2 percent from 7.1 percent.
AIMS: To examine the relation between unemployment rates in area of residence and all-cause mortality, taking the individuals unemployment experience and a number of social and behavioural factors into account. METHODS: Prospective cohort study with record linkage to mortality and unemployment registers. Data were pooled data from two population studies conducted in Copenhagen, Denmark. The association between unemployment at parish level and mortality was examined in Cox proportional hazard analysis. A total of 15 980 men and women, aged 20-67 years and employed at 1 January 1980, were studied. All-cause mortality was followed from January 1981 to December 1998. RESULTS: The unemployment rate in the area of residence was associated with increased mortality (hazard ratio(highest v lowest quartile) 1.35:0.14-1.60) even after adjustment for individuals unemployment experience in 1980, which was also a risk factor (hazard ratio(yes/no) 1.38:1.16-1.64). These estimates attenuated somewhat when ...
Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, publishes today the results of the Labour Force Survey for the second quarter of 2020. While the Covid-19 pandemic did not cause major changes in labour market indicators in the first quarter of 2020, it did so in the second quarter. The employment rate is decreasing but, at the same time, the ILO unemployment rate continues to fall. This ILO unemployment rate is drawn up in accordance with the definitions of the International Labour Office, in order to ensure comparability of results at international level. ILO unemployed are people who do not have a job, are actively looking for work and are available to start work within two weeks[1]. Contrary to administrative unemployment rates, which are on the rise, the ILO unemployment rate decreases in the second quarter of 2020 due to the fact that part of the unemployed people are no longer looking for work or are no longer available to start work within two weeks, for example because they have to take care of ...
Despite adding 2,200 jobs in January, Colorados unemployment rate hit a record level, even surpassing the national average.. The Colorado unemployment rate increased from a revised 8.9 in December percent to 9.1 percent in January. The national unemployment rate dropped from 9.4 percent to 9 percent over the same period.. Its the highest unemployment rate since the 8.8 percent recorded in January 1983.. We havent achieved balance between number of people looking for work and the number of jobs available for them, said Bill Thoennes, spokesman for the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.. Margaret Jackson: 303-954-1473 or [email protected] ...
WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. employers added 171,000 jobs in October and hiring was stronger over the previous two months than first thought. The unemployment rate inched up to 7.9 percent from 7.8 percent in September because some workers who had given up re-entered the search for jobs. The Labor Departments last look at hiring before Tuesdays election sketched a picture of a job market that is searching for any momentum after nearly stalling in the spring. Since July, the economy has created an average of 173,000 jobs a month, up from 67,000 a month from April through June. Still, President Barack Obama will face voters with the highest unemployment rate of any incumbent since Franklin Roosevelt. The rate ticked up because more people without jobs started looking for work. The government only counts people as unemployed if they are actively searching.
NOTE THE INTRODUCTION WILL BE EXTENDED ONCE THE BODY OF THE CHAPTER IS COMPLETED] 11.2 Categories of Unemployment. Economists have long used taxonomies to organise their thoughts about unemployment. Two often used categorisations focus on the distinction between frictional, structural, cyclical (demand-deficient), and seasonal categories, on the one hand; and, the distinction between voluntary and involuntary unemployment on the other hand.. These taxonomies can cut across each other and neither one is better than the other. The categorisation system depends on the purpose of the analysis. In general, economists have married these categorisation frameworks into broader theoretical discussions which seek to explain why unemployment arises, whether it is a problem or not, and what can be done about it via policy interventions should we consider it to be a problem.. The most popular typology used to describe unemployment distinguishes between frictional, structural, cyclical (demand-deficient), and ...
MADISON Wisconsin s unemployment rate ticked up in September, increasing from 3.4 percent to 3.5 percent.. The state Department of Workforce Development reported the employment information on Thursday. It remains below the national unemployment rate of 4.2 percent.. The state gained 5,900 private sector jobs between August and September.. Workforce Development Secretary Ray Allen says the 2.5 million people working in private sector jobs in September is an alltime high.. Allen says Wisconsin is more than ready to meet the workforce needs of current and future employers. Wisconsin has been struggling with a well-documented workforce shortage problem. As of Thursday, there were more than 102,000 job openings posted on the state s official jobs website.. Walker has also emphasized the need to tackle the worker shortage problem, making it a focus of his second term. ...
The most important item in this report is the drop in the unemployment rate below 6%. [Fed Chair Janet] Yellen has said there is only so much slack if the unemployment rate falls below 6%, said Christopher Low, chief economist at FTN Financial in New York.. The Feds stimulus program, known as quantitative easing, is due to end this month. Its aim was to keep long-term interest rates low using the purchase of bonds, and thus to boost spending.. The Federal Reserve has indicated it will raise short term interest rates if the economy continues to grow. Janet Yellen has given no firm date for the rise, but the Fed has said the move will come a considerable time after the stimulus program ends.. The Labor Department said 69,000 more jobs were created in July and August than previously estimated. It also said nearly 100,000 jobseekers stopped looking for work in September.. The largest rise in employment was in professional and business services, including management and legal services, which ...
Economists were not expecting for the US economy to create a lot of jobs in June, but they did reckon north of 100,000 workers, net of layoffs, would be added to the labor pool last month. They guessed wrong. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the US economy only added 18,000 jobs, less than one-tenth the amount needed to just keep up with population growth and the lowest number of jobs added to the economy in the past nine months.. The unemployment rate, which is calculated separately, rose by a tenth of a point to 9.2 per cent, and there are 14.1 million people who cant find work in the United States. It would take somewhere on the order of 4 per cent GDP growth for a year to knock one point off the unemployment rate, and the consensus is that GDP might grow at 3 per cent this year. So this morning the Obama administration is scrambling to do damage control while it is in the midst of stalled budget negotiations.. If you are a Keynesian, you can blame governments in two ways for the ...

Scranton city workers putting in a full week of work for minimum wage may be eligible for partial unemployment compensation, and some are considering it.. Attorneys specializing in unemployment compensation are divided on city workers potential eligibility. Officials at the state Department of Labor and Industry, which administers unemployment compensation, refuse to comment on what criteria would apply to the city workers situation. We are considering asking our members to sign up, but hoping this gets resolved in a quick manner, said Sam Vitris, head of the city Department of Public Works. Whether they are eligible or not, may be another story.. They may have a good chance, said John Gallagher, a Philadelphia-based attorney specializing in unemployment compensation. While being unemployed is an important criterion, he said, so is compensation. The purpose for unemployment compensation is to provide a cushion for sudden and severe loss of wages, he said. Partial unemployment is common ...
In Study I, transitions between three labour market states over a period of 15 years among individuals who initially (1995) had no or limited income from work were studied. This state was defined as jobless and consisted mostly of individuals on long-term unemployment. The three studied states were; 1) Jobless (i.e., the inclusion criteria), 2) Self-sufficient (main income from work), and 3) Disabled (main income from the Swedish sickness insurance system). Fifteen years later, more than half of the study population were mainly self-sufficient (i.e., their main income was from work) whereas a smaller proportion were dependent on benefits from the unemployment office or sickness insurance benefits. The results indicated a health selection in transitions from jobless to other states. Those with low morbidity were subsequently to a higher degree in paid work compared to those with high morbidity, who were more likely to be unemployed or on sickness insurance benefits. Transitions into ...
In this prospective study of almost 15 000 adults from a metropolitan area with high rates of unemployment we found that local unemployment rates and individuals unemployment experience were both associated with increased all-cause mortality after adjustment for a number of social and behavioural factors. The relation between unemployment and mortality at the individual level is well established,1,2-5 and our risk estimates were consistent with previous studies. The present study also showed that the effect increased with the number of years unemployed in both men and women. The mechanisms by which unemployment can affect health involve material circumstances (financial strain), psychosocial factors, and selection. The reduction in income that accompanies job loss is typically large enough to require substantial financial adjustments by those involved. This seems to lead to both material deprivation and psychological distress. Occupation is considered one of the core social roles with profound ...
Its not a surprise that if you cut either the amount of unemployment benefit, or the time they can receive it, then someone who is unemployed will find a new job more quickly. Richard Layard has for decades been pointing out that Europes generally higher long term unemployment rate, while short term unemployment is about the same, compared to the US is a result of our unemployment benefits not being time limited, theirs being so.. However, theres another point to be made here, which is that we dont want someone unemployed simply to take any job at all as a result of fearing starvation. We would rather that theres enough support, and thus enough time, for round pegs to find round holes. Thus theres an argument for generous support for a considerable period of time.. But how generous and how considerable? Rather less than many think perhaps:. Newly unemployed Floridians receive less generous jobless benefits for fewer weeks than allotted in most states.. The result? They find new employment ...
By Natalie Spievack, Jorge González, Steven Brown. Since the national emergency declaration for COVID-19, more than 33 million Americans have filed for unemployment insurance, and economic forecasts place the United States on the path to recession. No group has escaped the devastating economic effects of COVID-19, but todays US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report on nationwide, industry-level job loss data (the first evidence showing how racial and ethnic groups have fared across industries amid COVID-19) show that job losses have hit Latinx workers harder than any other group.. For the first time since 1973, when the BLS began tracking unemployment by ethnicity, the Latinx unemployment rate is the highest of all racial and ethnic groups, at 18.9 percent in April. The unemployment rate is 16.7 percent for Black people, 14.5 percent for Asian people, and 14.2 percent for white people (though its likely even higher for all groups, as these survey data reflect responses collected during the ...

Getting food stamps for unemployed workers does require paperwork and an interview with a social worker. But many people who arent working will likely qualify for food stamps and possibly even additional cash assistance. Read on to find important guidelines regarding food stamps for unemployed workers.
A number of Congressional Democrats continue to push for an extension of unemployment benefits. The HEROS Act proposed by Congresswoman Nita Lowey, a Democrat from New York, would extend the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation to Jan. 31, 2020. It would also pave the way for a second stimulus payment. The Worker Relief and Security Act has been proposed by Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat from Colorado; Sen. Jack Reed, a Democrat from Rhode Island; and Rep. Don Beyer, a Democrat from Virginia. It would extend unemployment benefits until President Trump declares the state of emergency for COVID-19 is over. At that point, benefits would continue for another 30 days and then come to a close. Those still on unemployment would still receive weekly funds - but the amount would be reduced over the course of 13 weeks depending on the unemployment rate of each state. Both proposals have been opposed by Senate Republicans including Sen. Mitch McConnel from Kentucky and Sen. Lindsey Graham from South ...
If you want to be remembered in economics, get yourself a curve. There is the Lorenz curve, the Laffer curve, the Kuznets curve and, probably the most famous, the Phillips curve. Phillips was AW Phillips, a New Zealand economist who worked in London. In 1958, he drew a curve connecting the points between inflation and unemployment. When unemployment fell, inflation rose. The Phillips curve has taken the economics profession by storm.. Sometimes people love your curve so much that it becomes law. This is what happened to Arthur Okun. He drew a curve showing the relationship between growth in inflation-adjusted gross domestic product and changes in the unemployment rate. When real GDP has grown sufficiently, unemployment has fallen. Okuns colleagues in the Kennedy administration liked it so much that they called it Okuns Law.. The problem with curves and laws in economics is that they dont stay put. The relationship between inflation and unemployment has changed since the days of Professor ...
From the early 1970s until the early 1990s, rises in the unemployment rate reflected the business cycle, as well as industry and organisation restructuring. A further notable characteristic of the unemployment rate during this period was the persistence of relatively high rates of unemployment following economic downturns. In 1975 the unemployment rate stood at 4.9%, reaching 6.3% in 1978 and 1979. This higher rate of unemployment was not reversed in the early 1980s. By 1983 the Australian economy had experienced another economic recession and the effects were manifested in a substantial increase in the unemployment rate to 10.0%. The unemployment rate recovered to 6.2% in 1989. It then increased again, reaching a peak of 10.9% in 1993 following the severe economic downturn of 1990-91. The unemployment rate has been generally falling since then. By 1999 it had fallen to 7.2%, slightly higher than it was near the beginning of the century. ...

Youth unemployment in Bulgaria in August 2013 was 26.2 per cent, a figure lower than the 28.2 per cent recorded in August 2012 - but in both cases, representing about 65 000 young people.. The figures were released on October 1 by EU statistics office Eurostat.. The youth unemployment rate is the number of people aged 15 to 24 unemployed as a percentage of the labour force of the same age, in the method used by Eurostat. This explains why roughly the same figure for the number of unemployed young people produces a different percentage.. In August 2013, 5.499 million under-25s were unemployed in the 28-member European Union, of whom 3.457 million were in the euro zone.. Compared with August 2012, youth unemployment decreased by 123 000 in the EU28 and by 52 000 in the euro area.. In August 2013, the youth unemployment rate was 23.3 per cent in the EU28 and 23.7 per cent in the euro area, compared with 23.1 per cent and 23.4 per cent, respectively, in August 2012..

Another thing to keep in mind is one of the first concepts we teach students in introductory statistics and research courses: correlation is not causation. We cannot make the claim that one variable in this equation causes the other variable, even though they clearly seem to be associated with one another. In fact, we know that unemployment rates do not cause the top marginal tax rates to be what they are at any given time. Top marginal tax rates are set (caused) by the laws implemented by state and federal legislatures. Even if one were to argue that law makers decisions on tax policies are influenced by unemployment rates, the election cycle and legislative cycle normally play out over a number of years, sometimes decades, when unemployment often fluctuates a great deal, so it is not reasonable to contend that unemployment rates cause the marginal tax rates to be what they are. However, it is quite plausible that top marginal tax rates have a causal effect on the unemployment rate, ...
The labor force participation rate increased from 62.7 percent to 62.9 percent in January as the number of people not in the labor force declined from 92,898,000 in December to 92,544,000 in January, and the unemployment rate ticked up
As EPIs Elise Gould pointed out back in January, a key barrier to translating overall economic growth in recent decades into rapid poverty reduction has been the rise in income inequality. Were economic growth more broadly shared, the poverty rate would be much lower. Here we make the case that this rise in inequality has large policy fingerprints all over it. Todays data on income and poverty from the Census Bureau shows how a recent policy choice-specifically cutting back on unemployment insurance (UI) in recent years-has stalled poverty reduction.. Unemployment insurance is a key plank of the American social insurance system. During the ferocious period of job loss and historically high unemployment during and immediately after the Great Recession, policymakers responded by significantly expanding the duration of benefits, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) included boosts to the generosity of benefits as well. The result was that in 2009, UI benefits kept 3.3 million ...
During the 1990s Finland experienced a great economic recession which lasted until 1997. As a result unemployment rate in Finland rose to 17 percent in 1997 from 3.4 percent in 1990. However, due to the stable income distribution within the Finnish society, health and social services for the unemployed were not compromised. This chapter deals with the relationship of unemployment and mortality rate in this country. In studying the said relation between the two variables, two things must be kept in mind: first, unemployment contributes to higher mortality rate due to psychosocial stress and that people who can be included in the mortality rate are among those who are not likely to be employed. The study uses data gathered at the municipal level.

Center for American Progress, Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality, and National Employment Law Project release report on updating unemployment insurance for a 21st century economy and establishing a new Jobseekers Allowance.. Washington, D.C. - Today, three leading organizations dedicated to bolstering economic security and opportunity released a set of new proposals to strengthen unemployment protections for Americas working families. The Center for American Progress, the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality, and the National Employment Law Project introduced a comprehensive package of reforms to modernize the unemployment insurance, or UI, system. These reforms would enhance worker mobility, reduce unemployment, protect independent contractors for the first time, and better prepare the economy to withstand unexpected downturns.. UI was a vital tool for both family economic security and national economic stability during the Great Recession and continues to help working ...

Theres an old saying among black activists in terms of unemployment, When the nation catches a cold, we (blacks) get pneumonia, said David Bositis, a senior political analyst at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies.. Blacks and Hispanics have been hit the hardest by the economic recession. Since Sept. 11, President George W. Bush has done well in reassuring the nation that all will be well, against terrorism that is. However, that does not extinguish the fact that the United States economy is in the worst slump its seen in almost a decade.. According to blackamericaweb.com, the unemployment rate for Hispanics in December was 7.9 percent, the highest its been since July 1997. The unemployment rate for blacks was 10.2 percent - twice that of whites. Also, there are many undocumented minority workers, which means that the unemployment rates could be even higher.. Minorities occupy most of the jobs in manufacturing, air transportation, hotels and temporary employment services. ...
Considering the most recent changes in the pension systems in Europe, this article aims to evaluate whether there is any relationship between the employment rates of older cohorts and the employment and unemployment rates in the youngest cohorts of a productive age. Its key finding is that there is no evidence that would indicate that the lower professional activity of older people is accompanied by higher employment and lower unemployment among young people. On the contrary, the study reveals that the higher the labour force participation among the elderly, the better the situation for young cohorts in the labour market. As demonstrated by the results of our empirical research, factors such as unfavourable demographics and the inefficiency of government policy aiming at stimulating the development of the labour market influence the prospects of young people entering this market.

OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine the association between changes in unemployment, healthcare spending and stomach cancer mortality. METHODS: Multivariate regression analysis was used to assess how changes in unemployment and public-sector expenditure on healthcare (PSEH) varied with stomach cancer mortality in 25 member states of the European Union from 1981 to 2009. Country-specific differences in healthcare infrastructure and demographics were controlled for 1- to 5-year time-lag analyses and robustness checks were carried out. RESULTS: A 1% increase in unemployment was associated with a significant increase in stomach cancer mortality in both men and women [men: coefficient (R)=0.1080, 95% confidence interval (CI)=0.0470-0.1690, P=0.0006; women: R=0.0488, 95% CI=0.0168-0.0809, P=0.0029]. A 1% increase in PSEH was associated with a significant decrease in stomach cancer mortality (men: R=-0.0009, 95% CI=-0.0013 to -0.005, P|0.0001; women: R=-0.0004, 95% CI=-0.0007 to -0.0001, P=0.0054).

new classmate essay The Commons of the of unemployment, University of New Hampshire are covered with billboards. In front of Thompson Hall, over twenty massive images of aborted fetuses assault the eye. One of these signs reads The K.K.K; the S.S above black and white pictures of lynched slaves and the stacked bodies of utnapishtim gilgamesh, concentration camp victims. Next to them is a brilliantly red photograph of unidentifiable gore labeled Planned Parenthood. As if the effects, visual implication were not enough, those manning the billboards are shouting their message: They are the Genocide Awareness Project, and of congo, they are on my campus telling me, yelling in my face as I pass by, that abortion is genocide. My t-shirt reads the definition of the of unemployment, word genocide on the front and Abortion ? Genocide on the back, and I point to with imagery it as I silently joint the ranks of those protesting the demonstration. When Perlstein asks What s the of unemployment, Matter with ...

An economic recession can usually be spotted before it happens. There is a tendency to see the economic landscape changing in quarters preceding the actual onset. While the growth in GDP will still be present, it will show signs of sputtering and you will see higher levels of unemployment, decline in housing prices, decline in the stock market, and business expansion plans being put on hold. When the economy sees extended periods of economic recession, the economy can be referred to as being in an economic depression ...
As noted in a recent Lancet article,38 remarkably little research has been devoted to the health effects of the economic crisis that bursted in the fall of 2007, and considered to be the deepest recession since the Great Depression. Suicide rates can be seen as a summary proxy for population mental health.39 From this perspective, it is of interest to analyse how this form of mortality is affected by the current crisis, and more specifically the ensuing surge in unemployment. This is an indicator that lies close to peoples experience of economic turmoil, and which has proved to be the one that is most closely related to population health.40 In this paper we have put this issue into perspective by analysing time-series data that span a long period of time and cover countries representing welfare regimes with quite different degrees of unemployment protection. The data were analysed by two different methods that supplement each other.. The division of countries into the five welfare regimes ...
The Sluggish US Employment Picture-Becker Employment in the United States fell by a lot during the Great Recession from December 2007 to June 2009. The unemployment rate grew correspondingly from a low of 4.4% in May 2007 to a peak of 10.2% in 2009, and the underemployed grew even faster. That was bad enough, but the growth in employment and decline in unemployment since the trough of the recession has been quite slow. Forecasters got a shock on Friday with the release of preliminary data that indicated the unemployment rate rose a little from 9.6% to 9.8% in November rather...
Much of the discussion on finding solutions to the unemployment problem has centered on the vital role of faster economic growth. Faster economic growth is viewed as a means of generating more jobs, thats why the government has to do something in order for the investors and big companies to set up there business here in the Philippines because it can help to produce a lot of jobs for the Filipinos and it can reduce the problem of unemployment rate in the Philippines. Here in the Philippines , we also have a very serious problem about the corruption, this is a very serious problem here in the Philippines because instead for the money allotted for improving the infrastructures, and programs to encourage the tourists to come in the Philippines , the high officials of our government uses this money for there own purposes.As a result, the unemployment rate in the Philippines is increasing year by year and thats because of few people who thinks for there own and we common people are the one who is ...
At the first Australian Political Economy Movement conference in Sydney, there were a number of papers purporting to explain unemployment and economic crisis as an inherent feature of capitalism. None of them even suggested that the personal malevolence of Malcolm Fraser was a cause of the problem - let alone the cause. Nevertheless, the conference plenary session adopted a resolution loudly denouncing the Fraser Government for causing our economic difficulties with its wrong policies!. If that is the response of people at a political economy conference, it is not surprising that the left generally completely capitulates to Labor Party views about the economy. The general feeling is that somehow or other, it must be Malcolm Frasers fault, even though unemployment actually grew much more rapidly under Whitlam than it has under Fraser. Even people who know better tend to go along with this because there does not seem to be much else to do. Demonstrations and agitation have to have a target, and ...
Over the longer term, the Employment Population Ratio has been fairly flat as the unemployment rate kept dropping. So where is the inconsistency? One measure that explains this disconnect is called the Labor Force Participation Rate. It measures the total US labor force, combining both the employed as well as the unemployed, as a proportion of the total working age population. This measure is showing that the total labor force has been shrinking relative to the corresponding age group. And that explains a good deal of the reduction in the unemployment rate as the number of people officially employed has been measured against an increasingly smaller labor force (with many unemployed simply exiting ...
The unemployment rate in South Korea declined in August, going against the consensus expectation for an increase amidst the countrys struggles with the pandemic. The unemployment rate slipped to 2.8% from 3.3% in July. This is partly attributed to a decline in the labour force participation rate, a sign that there is a decline in the economically active population. Nonetheless, there was also a slight increase in the number of employed persons, as a strong trade performance fuelled hiring. The employment situation is likely to improve with upcoming emergency handouts and an easing of virus curbs. Labor Force for South Korea from Statistics Korea for the Summary of Economically Active Population Survey [Monthly] release. This page provides forecast and historical data, charts, statistics, news and updates for South Korea Labor Force.

Structural unemployment is difficult to measure, but there are hints in the data that the spike in unemployment following the crisis was not purely cyclical.
According to the Employment Situation First Quarter 2015 report - the number of unemployed Singaporeans (seasonally adjusted) in March was 50,200.. All-time low of only 53.3% Singaporeans in the workforce?. Since the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for Singaporeans was 2.6% - does it mean that the number of Singaporeans in the workforce was about 1,930,769 (50,200 divided by 0.026)?. So, does it mean that the percentage of Singaporeans was 53.3% (1,930,769 Singaporeans divided by 3,624,200 total workforce)?. Is this an all-time low for the percentage of Singaporeans in the workforce?. With a total of 153,923 new citizens granted from 2007 to 2014 - what percentage of the 53.3% Singaporeans in the workforce are true-blue Singaporeans?.

Posted on 03/29/2013 1:06:09 PM PDT by Kaslin. WASHINGTON - Barack Obamas failed job policies are facing bitter criticism from African-American leaders who say black unemployment has grown worse under his presidency. After four years of holding their tongues and remaining quiet in the face of sharply rising black unemployment and record poverty, political leaders from the Congressional Black Caucus to the NAACP have begun to open fire on the White House. Obama won 96 percent of the black vote in 2008 and about the same percentage in 2012, despite a worsening jobless crisis among African-Americans. At 14 percent for adults and 43.1 percent for 16-to-19-year-old teenagers, blacks still have the highest jobless rate of any minority group in the U.S. Black leaders in Congress largely kept their complaints to themselves throughout Obamas first term in office and his re-election campaign. But no longer. The nations black leadership has become a great deal more vocal lately about severe ...

Generation Opportunity President Paul T. Conway, former Chief of Staff of the United States Department of Labor, where the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is housed, and the former Chief of Staff of the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) responds to the May 2012 jobs numbers:. The young adult unemployment rate, now at 12.1 percent for those 18-29 years old, represents yet another chapter in the indefensible saga of how a great generation is being denied economic opportunity, jobs, critical skills, and the ability to pursue their dreams.. As summer begins, the ranks of all those frustrated by the lack of opportunities are joined by recent high school and college graduates whose enthusiasm to join the work force has been slammed by the same harsh economic status quo their brothers and sisters have been experiencing for the past few years - one marked by record high unemployment, a patchwork of part-time jobs, or jobs outside their chosen profession.. Through no fault of their ...
