    Already have, discouraged workers weren't counted as unemployed after 1994. There was no calculation for U-6 numbers during the Reagan years or prior to 1994

    There's no way your head can be above ground without understanding what I posted. The truth (something you're allergic to) is that you just don't want to accept it.

    unfortunately I know exactly what you are posting and how you are distorting the numbers to make Obama look better than he really is. The question is why do you support the Obama policies and what he is doing?

    I know what you claim. You claim a lot of things that aren't actually true. What I want to see is the evidence supporting your claim.

Reagan's unemployment, GDP growth, employment, and revenue growth to the govt. were much better than Obama's and the economy worse
    One more time for the reading impaired...

    And after 36 months in office, the U3 rate icreased half a point under Reagan just like it has under Obama.

    No response? Not going to document your claim, Con?

    I wonder why?

    Maybe it's because the 1994 bls changes actually resulted in a HIGHER unemployment rate relative to the old methodology -- not a lower rate, as you claim?

    To gain an understanding of how the revised CPS survey differed from the former CPS, a parallel survey using the new questionnaire was administered to roughly 12,000 households over an 18-month period. The new CPS yielded an overall unemployment rate of 7.3 percent compared with 6.8 percent under the old survey. The new questionnaire also indicated higher unemployment among women, teenagers and the elderly. The unemployment rate for women, for instance, was 7.1 percent under the new survey compared to 6.4 percent under the old CPS.

    No what you want is proof that you will ignore. Research discouraged workers and the U-6 rate, that way you will actually learn something

    Where does the U-3 rate come from CPS or BLS? Find the U-6 rate also in the BLS data for years prior to 1994

    Proof I will address. Your unsubstantiated assertions I shall continue to ignore.
