If you were to look at the nation's unemployment rate, the economic situation in the country may not seem so bad, but the unemployment rate isn't always the best gauge of the job market.
Thirty-seven percent of our adult population, 91 million Americans, don't work and aren't looking for work, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Along with those discouraged to seek work, these 91 million Americans include those who are enrolled in school, retired and staying at home for various reasons.
Below you can see a pie chart of the U.S. working-age population, including everyone over age 16.
