Knowing your Unemployment Rates Facts (1)

Thus, testing test the unemployment rate is whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. [i]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. [ii]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.

Windows 2012: Derivation of steady-state condition for the unemployment rate:

Because the labor force in denoted by, equals the sum of the number of employed number of unemployed, the change in the number of unemployed persons can be written as the change in the labor force minus the change in the number of employed persons. 

Normalizing both sides of this expression by the labor force and using the fact that the unemployment rate the ratio of the number of unemployed persons and the size of the labor force, we can write.

Hence, for the change in the unemployment rate to be zero that is for unemployment to be in steady state, it must be the case thus the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.

Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.  [iii]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.  Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.  Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.  [iv]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.  Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.  Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.  Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.

Unemployment Terminology

Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. [v]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. v Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. [vi]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.

Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. [vii]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. [viii]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment. [ix]Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.

Footnotes
(1) The distinction between full- and part-time workers is based on hours usually worked. These data do not sum to totals because full- or part-time status on the principal job is not identifiable for a small number of multiple jobholders.

Note: See the technical notes section for information about the federal minimum wage level and estimating the number of minimum wage workers. Estimates for the race groups shown (White, Black or African American, and Asian) do not sum to totals because data are not presented for all race groups. People of Hispanic or Latino ethnicity may be of any race; estimates for the race groups include Hispanics.

Technical Notes

Derivation of steady-state condition for the unemployment rate:

Because the labor force in month , denoted by , equals the sum of the number of employed, , and the number of unemployed, , the change in the number of unemployed persons can be written as the change in the labor force minus the change in the number of employed persons. That is

                                                       .                              (1)

Normalizing both sides of this expression by the labor force and using the fact that the unemployment rate, , is the ratio of the number of unemployed persons and the size of the labor force, we can write

                                                     .                            (2)

 Hence, for the change in the unemployment rate to be zero, that is for unemployment to be in steady state, it must be the case that . Thus, the unemployment rate is in steady state whenever the growth rate of the labor force equals the growth rate of employment.
