    It's scary that he's the loudest voice for Conservatives on the website when it comes to posting BLS data.

    I would say "funny" rather than "scary".

    So then tell us were discouraged workers counted as unemployed prior to 1994 or were they left out of the official U-3 number

    Seriously, Con, you really should start paying attention in class. Adam already addressed that in post #1135.

    Seriously Sheik you would be taken more seriously if you weren't so caustic. Read the article completely and get back to me. I asked you the question which you ran from, were discouraged workers counted during the Reagan years as unemployed or were they eliminated as they are today. Read the report for the answer

    And yet again, there is no dispute that the current U-3 number includes fewer discouraged workes than it used to. But OVER ALL, due to other changes that reduced the undercounting of unemployed people, the current methodology results in a higher unemployment rate than the pre-94 methodology. No dodging that bullet.

    There's nothing I need to answer which wasn't addressed in post #1135 regrading discouraged workers. Perhaps the problem is that this is just another topic you don't understand? Afterall, you were easily tripped up by 'CPS'. If that's the case, I'd be happy to explain it to you.
