    If anything the post-'94 change spread would be greater now because the poplulation has aged and more women are working -- two categories that were undercounted prior to '94.

    An aging population retires not drops out of the labor force because of becoming discouraged.

    Well that doesn't make sense from a grammatical perspective, but the point is that plenty of older people keep working well past retirement age, or need to, or would like to.

    As Sheik pointed out accurately for a change, U-6 is more than discouraged workers. I am talking discouraged workers which make today's unemployment look better than it really is

    Yes, I know you want to focus on only one aspect of the '94 changes, but in fact there were many changes that resulted in unemployment actually looking worse than it really is relative to pre-'94 calculations.

    If those million were discouraged during the Reagan years they would have been counted as unemployed

    Yeah, and even more unemployed teenagers, women, and older folks wouldn't have been counted.
