    Are you unemployed?

    What is your employment status?

    Are you fully, part-time, or unemployed?

    I'll bet the true unemployment percentage is much greater than most people realize.

    I understand that unemployment percentages are calculated by using those that collect unemployment benefits, and the rest of them are not counted at all.

    With only ten options, I could not list them all. If your situation is "other," explain in your post.

    If you are unemployed, how long?

    You are both correct and not telling us anything new. In addition, did you know that it doesn't figure how many are underemployed where underemployment, iirc, is defined as making less than 75% of your previous position or position pre-recession.

    Re: Are you unemployed?

    Underemployed, unfortunately. Between drill pay and my other job, I rake in a little under 20K a year.

    It's rather pitiful, all told.

    That is why a much better statistic is the number of people employed and that number compared with the number of persons who could work or with the total population. Which is better depends on what you want to know.
    But definitely the unemployment rate is deceptive.

    Employed but I won't vote because it will mess with the stats since I don't live in the USA.

    It actually calculates those actively seeking jobs, the rest are not counted. The actual unemployment rate is probably 12-13% not the 6.7% that got reported. Count the underemployed and its probably over 25%

    It's alright. Be forewarned though, the general level of FUBAR you'll experience might be a bit jarring at first.
