How did the unemployment rate among African Americans compare to the national unemployment rate during the great depression?
It was nearlydouble the national rate. .
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 poor…est cities. Canada does not have the same programs in all regions. For example we have an Employment program to help those who 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.

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 unemployment was said to have been double the national unemployment rate.
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 t…he US rate. For example, in June 2008 the reported unemployment in the US was 5.5 percent and 6.1% in Canada. However, a closer 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%.
