What similarities and differences do you notice?


Abe student labor force status

ABE Student Labor Force Status


Labor force status who is counted as unemployed

Labor Force Status: Who is counted as unemployed?

Persons are classified as unemployed if they:

  • Do not have a job,

  • Have actively looked for work in the prior 4 weeks, AND

  • Are currently available for work.

    From the Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://www.bls.gov/cps/cps_htgm.htm)


Labor force status who is counted as unemployed1

Labor Force Status: Who is counted as unemployed?

Actively looking for work may consist of any of the following activities:

  • Contacting:

    • An employer directly or having a job interview

    • A public or private employment agency

    • Friends or relatives

    • A school or university employment center

  • Sending out resumes or filling out applications

  • Placing or answering advertisements

  • Checking union or professional registers

  • Some other means of active job search

    From the Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://www.bls.gov/cps/cps_htgm.htm)

Labor Force Status: Who is counted as unemployed?

Passive methods of job search do not have the potential to result in a job offer and therefore do not qualify as active job search methods. Examples of passive methods include attending a job training program or course, or merely reading about job openings that are posted in newspapers or on the Internet.
