I am not sure, to be honest. Unless they do it through surveys. I gave up looking for work. I'm a full time student now, at 41.

@Roy. All statistics are taken from a small sample of the population then applied to the population as a whole. There is no other reasonable mathematical way to calculate employment. All statistics are this way. For the most part, due to consistency, the percentages are fairly accurate, for the BLS.

Anyone can go to the BLS (Bureau of Labor and Statistics) and look at all of the different charts of data. It is kind of interesting. Google the formulas for determining percentages and do the math. When you do factor in the underemployed AND those who have stopped looking, the percentage(s) go way up!

@ Scrap. I read an article about two weeks ago, wish I could recall who to attribute it too, but the point was to basically let BHO and the libs have their way, let them own it all, and maybe after all heck breaks loose, and people know what suffering really means, they will learn what it means to work for a meal and to never again allow themselves to sit back and not hold Washington accountable.

@Roy The BLS gets numbers from households and businesses through surveys. Big Brother knows how many people are of working age, how many are working, who is drawing a check of some sort when they are of working age, they ask employers about their hiring and number of hours per week their employees work. Businesses report quarterly when filing and paying unemployment insurance to state and Feds. Etc. The GDP, trade, and all sorts of information gauges what is happening.

Washington will always spin things however it suits them. The real problem is that the general voting public is uneducated, naive, and or lazy. There are a few million voters who would love to topple Washington, start from scratch, bring the masses to their senses. There just aren't enough to do it. At least not yet.
