In the case of the United States, yes it does. It also contributes to the crisis by allowing the loss of capital, and if the government does not do anything about that, it ultimately could contribute to the downfall of the United States as a worldwide capital power. This should serve as an example t…o the world, that in order to grow as a country the country needs to use the manpower resources first inside their country. Unfortunately some unscrupulous big American anti-American companies work against the United States by sending the jobs overseas cheating the United States of the money that would have been otherwise recycled into the economy, just so couple of people on top get to sell their products cheaper and beat the competitors. Reality check, if they continue to do so, there would not be more buyers in the US and they will eventually destroy their own market. There should be more rules and regulations in the US regarding outsourcing. I bet there are plenty of people outside the US that will not like what I'm saying here. Just my opinion. Another opinion: Yes, if the company is outsourcing to a place away from the business' location, (i.e. overseas, another state, etc.) then it would cause loss of jobs for the workers employed in the area outsourced from.

The unemployment rate can be a good indication of the economy's state. High employment rates show a lack in the growth of the economy and vice versa. Also, high levels of unemployment result in a decrease in general consumption (people have less money to spend as they are searching for jobs) and thi…s will contribute to slow business growth.

The underlying assumption - that there is unrest, disorder, rioting and so on when unemployment is high - is incorrect.

Sure, because it doesn't include the number of people who have become discouraged and are no longer seeking jobs, nor does it include the underemployed.
Yes you can. You have to report your monthly drill check to your employment office.
Both are measurements subject to qualifiers but Quebec is going to be high on the list as they have some of the best social programs. Sherbrooke for example is one of the poorest cities. Canada does not have the same programs in all regions. For example we have an Employment program to help those w…ho find themselves unemployed. It would seem to be a simple idea but it is administered differently across the land. I personally know of a case where after working continuously for 20yrs a worker found himself without work in Western Canada. He wouldn't be unemployed long but did not have a job to go to right away. He applied for EI (employment insurance) and was of course accepted. His support payment was $78 a week. Not enough to help. When he pointed out that out they looked again and got it up to $100 a week. Something but when they looked into it further he would be able to get up to $700 a week if he moved East, which also had much lower cost of living. If he wanted or needed to stay on EI he would of course move back East. Different regions are administered differently and this is true for almost all Canadian programs. Generally in Canada money flows from East to West so when looking for the lowest wages and highest unemployment look to regions that get large federal transfers, benefit from many federal programs and have good social programs. That is more likely to be found in Eastern Canada but there are many small areas in Western Canada that have very high unemployment and outright poverty but again look carefully, they get the most Federal support. It is a good general correlation for what you are looking for. (MORE)
Automation can be viewed as both a job creator as well as a job killer. It is a job creator by making it economically feasible to start a new business to manufacture a product that without automation would be far too expensive to produce. There are no factories that exist with zero workers. This is …a job creator. Consumer electronics is a good example. Even though there is still some manual assembly, without automation a smart phone might cost more than a thousand dollars and we'd all be lined up at phone booths asking for directions to our kids away games. Automation turns a luxury into a commodity and allows that same cycle to repeat. On the other hand, when automation is introduced into an existing process there is usually a loss of some jobs over time, but it is somewhat gradual and starts with the reallocation of manual workers. The best of the manual workers get training in a related, more productive role. However, without the introduction of automation, competing companies that do have automation can price their products more competitively or be more profitable and entire industries are lost - think of the US steel industry loss of jobs to newer, automated, foreign mills. Automation is the way to increase productivity, reduce the cost of goods, gain a competitive edge and enable the cost effective manufacture of new products. (MORE)
The unemployment rate is calculated by the number of people that have filed for unemployment benefits in each state. The figure can be somewhat misleading because this does not include the people who are not eligible for benefits, those that have exhausted benefits, or people that did not file for w…hatever reason. It is also misleading because the state's rate is calculated by the number of people collecting unemployment in that state. If I worked in Nevada, but moved to Florida, and become unemployed in Florida, then I have to contact Nevada to file for benefits - since my wages were in Nevada. There are also many people that have multiple wages in many states (construction workers, sales professionals, etc.). They have the unique ability of filing a combined wage claim and can chose the state (out of those they worked in), and file their claim in that state. So, the figures of the states where people are unemployed are often misleading. (MORE)

Because the 'official rate' uses data from the unemployment offices (who record claims of the unemployed), those not counted are: 1) those who have run out of benefits and are no longer reporting to the state; 2) Those who have given up looking for work, for various reasons; 3) those who have just c…ome into the work force ( from out of school, etc.) and are looking, but don't qualify for unemployment so the office is unaware of them; 4) those looking for work, but not fitting the description of 'worker' ( i.e. under-aged, unqualified, immigrant, day-laborer, self-employed, etc.); 5) workers in 'commission-only' industries ( Realtors, insurance, independent contractors, etc.), as they generally do not qualify for unemployment.

There are many factors that contribute to rising unemployment. Among them are: 1) Outsourcing by companies from areas of employment to improve their bottom line.. 2) Lack of consumer's confidence, causing them to save instead of spending. 3) Business anxieties of government actions regarding taxatio…n, regulations, etc. 4) Economy tanking causing stress on Wall Street and therefore investors reluctant to invest. 5) International crises that implicate exporting, competition from overseas, etc. 6) Higher business costs ( increased minimum wages, health benefits, pension plans, turn over rates, payroll taxes, etc.) 7) New workers coming into the work force (graduating, immigration, underemployment) 8) Jobs not being created fast enough to handle the supply of labor.

2.7% and increasing. It is only going to get worse. Until pre-pharmacy students find out that there is no job once they graduate as pharmacist and stop applying to pharmacy school, we are going to be flooded with pharmacists without pharmacies. If you are taking pre requisites and trying to apply to… pharmacy school, think twice. Apply to Dental school or Physician Assistant school because they have the same pre reqs, similar salary and much higher demand. Good luck! (MORE)
Unemployment funds the state pays unemployment benefits from comes from taxes or other means the state collects from the employer r. For income taxes the unemployed person must pay, it depends on the state which collects income taxes, if any, and the Federal government which excludes the first $240…0 received in benefits, but as it is taxable , it is accumulated with all other income the person receives and the rate he pays depends on the income tax bracket he is in.

Record home foreclosures reduced home building and the resultant construction trade. National economic conditions reduced discretionary income and as a result, Nevada's primary industry, gaming. Nevada's budget crunch also meant reduction in school, government, and other industries' employment as we…ll. Nevada had enjoyed the nation's highest boom in the previous years and it was only natural that it would feel the adverse effects in the same manner. My initial guess would be that Nevada is a service based economy. Therefore, its income comes from casinos, restaurants, tours; essentially tourism. Since the financial collapse of 2008 unnecessary expenses (i.e. travel) has significantly fallen. Therefore, this has caused a loss of jobs and has increased unemployment. Surprisingly its unemployment is lower than Michigan. However, since it is a service industry it depends on tourists. Lack of tourists=lack of jobs. Additionally, with the highest foreclosure rate in the nation, there is a glut of vacant homes on the market, which translates into no jobs available for the construction industry - a domino effect.

10.7% (2006) I don't know where this 10% came from. If it came from the Niue Statistics department then it probably measures the amount of working age people that don't work for the government in which case it is an abomination. There is no real unemployment in Niue. Subsistence agriculture and fi…shing are gainfully undertaken by a very small percentage of those not employed by the government or private sector. In a population of 1200 there wouldn't be 1% who don't partake in any of these forms of employment. (MORE)
Acceptability of employment rate depends on who is being asked..If one is employed he could care less what it is. If one is unemployed, the acceptable rate would be 0% (meaning he would have a job.) In reality, historically, the unemployment rate accepted in the U.S. was around 4%, meaning some were… coming in and going out of the work force at a basically even rate. This would include young people entering and older people retiring from the workforce. (MORE)

How did the national unemployment rate among African Americans compare to the national unemployment rate during the great depression?
Data on unemployment rates during the great depression is considered to be highly biased due to the fact that people that employed in public works programs were considered to be unemployed. The manner in which this data was collected was also suspect. At the time, however, African America unemployme…nt was said to have been double the national unemployment rate. (MORE)

The United States has a higher unemployment rate than Canada at this time. For several decades Canada typically had reported its unemployment rate as somewhat higher than the US rate. For example, in June 2008 the reported unemployment in the US was 5.5 percent and 6.1% in Canada. However, a clos…er examination reveals that the two countries measure the unemployment rate differently. Craig Riddell, a University of British Columbia economist, found that a 0.9% difference was caused by the differing measurement systems. Statistics Canada has also acknowledged this, and it now publishes a second unemployment rate using the same methodology as the Americans. Using the American methodology, the June 2008 Canadian unemployment rate was 5.3%, which was 0.2% lower than the American rate. As of February 2012, Canada's national unemployment rate stood at 7.4% while America's was 9.1%. (MORE)

Normally in the U.S. the unemployment rate is measured by the number of people filing for and receiving unemployment compensation. However, many failed to find employment before their unemployment compensation expired, or they had to settle for part-time employment or a job that pays less than that …for which they are trained and experienced. The determination of the true unemployment rate involves the endeavor to count those people as well. (MORE)
