The unemployment rate represents the number of individuals in the labor force who remain jobless. Each state has its own jobless rate to consider, while the country as a whole also has its percentage to monitor. Some economists claim that the unemployment rate is not the best way to measure the economy, especially because of all the variables that contribute to the numbers. For example, being unemployed is calculated by those who are actively seeking work, but remain without a job. Those who retire, leave the work force on their own accord or who work temporarily are not considered in these statistics. Individuals must have actively sought out employment within the past four weeks to be considered unemployed. Despite the variables involved, the jobless rate is still an important tool to measure the overall strength and job growth in the economy. State governments consider this figure in reference to the unemployment insurance program.
