The unemployment rate is a way for the Bureau of Labor Statistics to keep track of the amount of workers who are jobless compared to the entire labor force as one. The jobless rate are calculated is through two separate surveys conducted on a monthly basis. When determining the unemployment rate, the total number of jobless individuals—those without part-time or temporary work even—is then divided into the total amount of labor workers as a whole. Once that figure is multiplied by 100, then the percentage point is calculated. Economists and government officials use the unemployment rate to determine the economic standing of a state, in order to make predictions in terms of the employment sector and potential unemployment insurance beneficiaries. The jobless rate also can be used to compare how the economy on a state level is affecting the economy on a national level.
