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 ...

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...
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
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 ...
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 ...

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. ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...

Some observers have argued that the nations high unemployment rate during the current recovery stems partly from widespread mismatches between the skills of jobseekers and the needs of employers. A recent San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank conference on workforce skills considered evidence that employers have had difficulties finding workers with appropriate skills in recent years. However, these mismatches do not appear to be much more severe than in the past. Overall, the conference proceedings suggested the U.S. economy can still produce good jobs for workers at a variety of skill levels.
The Carolinas were hit with historic unemployment news today, as North Carolinas unemployment rate hit a new recorded high, and South Carolinas came in even higher.
Congress has finished work on, and President Bush has signed, legislation (H.R. 6867) that will extend unemployment insurance benefits for seven weeks, and for 13 weeks in states where the jobless rate is above 6 percent.. The president signed the billon the morning of Nov. 21, 2008, less than a day after news of a rapidly deteriorating unemployment picture and subsequent final action by Congress. The president had indicated that he would accept an unemployment extension if it remained separate from a larger and more costly economic stimulus package.. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) had released a report on Nov. 20 showing that the number of people filing for initial unemployment claims had climbed sharply from the previous week and had hit a 16-year high.. "The numbers cry out for an extension of unemployment insurance now," said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., just moments before the Senate approved the bill. The House had approved the extension measure in early October 2008.. Data ...
Sen. Jack Reed wants to add a one-year unemployment extension to the Senate's $85 billion tax cut bill, but his amendment is a long-shot to pass the Senate, let alone become law. The Rhode Island Democrat's proposal would be retroactive to December - so people who have gone without checks for months would be eligible for a sizable lump sum. I am committed to helping job seekers, he said in a statement. Reed has led the effort for an unemployment extension. His state has the highest unemployment rate in the nation at 8.3 percent. Emergency unemployment benefits expired in December, and since then more than 2.5 million unemployed people have been cut off from their weekly checks. Republicans filibustered the tax cut bill on Thursday , although Democratic and Republican leaders said they would continue to talk in an effort to agree on which amendments would be allowed to the bill, so there is at least a theoretical chance Reed's amendment could see the light of day. In the ...
From the BLS press release today. THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION -- SEPTEMBER 2012 The unemployment rate decreased to 7.8 percent in September, and total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 114,000, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in health care and in transportation and warehousing but changed little in most other major industries. Household Survey Data The unemployment rate declined by 0.3 percentage point to 7.8 percent in September. For the first 8 months of the year, the rate held within a narrow range of 8.1 and 8.3 percent. The number of unemployed persons, at 12.1 million, decreased by 456,000 in September. (See table A-1.) ...
In an effort to avoid the normative connotations of the word "natural," James Tobin (following the lead of Franco Modigliani), introduced the term the "Non-Accelerating Inflation Rate of Unemployment" (NAIRU), which corresponds to the situation where the real gross domestic product equals potential output. It has been called the "inflation threshold" unemployment rate or the inflation barrier. This concept is identical to Milton Friedmans concept of the "natural" rate but reflects the fact that there is nothing "natural" about an economy. The level of the NAIRU depends on the degree of "supply side" unemployment, i.e., joblessness that cant be abolished by high demand. This includes frictional, mismatch, and Classical unemployment. When the actual unemployment rate equals the NAIRU, there is no cyclical or deficient-demand unemployment. That is, Keynes involuntary unemployment does not exist. To understand this concept, start with the actual unemployment equal to the NAIRU. Then, assume that ...
STOCK PHOTO. By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER. AP Economics Writer. WASHINGTON - Years of steady hiring and economic growth have delivered a cumulative benefit for at least one group that hasnt always shared in Americas prosperity.. The unemployment rate for AfricanAmericans fell to 6.8 percent in December, the lowest level since the government began tracking such data in 1972. The reasons range from a greater number of black Americans with college degrees to a growing need for employers in a tight job market to widen the pool of people they hire from.. "The African American unemployment rate fell to 6.8 percent, the lowest rate in 45 years. I am so happy about this News!" President Donald Trump said in a tweet Saturday.. Still, the rate for black workers remains well above those for whites and some other groups, something experts attribute in large part to decades of discrimination and disadvantages.. Robust job creation has lowered unemployment for all Americans. U.S. employers added nearly 2.1 ...
