Five statistics the government doesn't want the public to know
Actual unemployment rate »1 of 5 «
The actual unemployment rate is 23 percent based on how the government calculated it in 1994. As of June 2012 the official government unemployment rate was 8.2 percent. In 1994 the government modified the calculation of unemployment to exclude short-term discouraged workers (those who are working part-time because they couldn’t find full-time work) and to exclude long-term discouraged workers (those who gave up looking for a job because they simply can’t find one).
