  • Percent of Total, Monthly, Not Seasonally Adjusted

    Series Is Presented Here As Two Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1887-1924 (2)--Original Data, 1920-1939. These Data Are Based On Returns Collected By The Board Of Trade And The Ministry Of Labour From Various Trade Unions Which Paid Unemployment Benefits. Persons On Strike, Locked Out, Sick, Or Superannuated Are Excluded. The Percentages For Some Of The Earlier Years Are Partly Computed From The Expenditures Of The Several Unions On Unemployment Benefit. March And April 1912 Were Affected By The National Coal Dispute. In 1919, Skilled Men Permanently Engaged In Their Trades Formed A Large Proportion Of The Members Of These Trade Unions. Unemployment In The Early Part Of 1919 Was Largely Of Semi-Skilled Men Who Were Discharged From Industries Which They Had Only Entered For War Purposes. The Figures Given Here Therefore May Not Fully Indicate The Amount Of Unemployment (Labor Gazette, January 20, P.3). April-June, 1921 Data Exclude The Coal Miners' Stoppage In Industry. 1924 Data Include Pottery And Are A Continuation Of Earlier Data. Labour Gazette Discontinued Pottery Trade Operations At End Of May 1924 But No Change Is Made In Data For March-May 1924 For Exclusion In Both The Abstract And The Gazette. The Gazette States That At The Time The Figures Were Not Yet Available.

    Series Is Presented Here As Two Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1887-1924 (2)--Original Data, 1920-1939. There Is No Figure For October 1920 Because Of A Coal Dispute. Figures Prior To December 1921 Are Not Available For Northern Ireland. Under The Provisions Of The Widows, Orphans, And Old Age Contributory Pensions Act Of 1925, All Persons Aged 65 And Over Ceased To Be Insured Under The Unemployment Insurance Acts As Of January 2, 1928. After That Date, Such Persons Ceased To Appear In The Statistics Showing The Number Of Insured Persons Recorded As Unemployed And The Figures For 1928 And Subsequent Years Are Therefore Not Comparable With Those Of Earlier Years. For All Practical Purposes, However, The Percenatges Unemployed Can Be Regarded As Comparable Throughout. From September 1937 On, The Monthly Count Of Books Lodged Has Been Corrected By Deduction Of Those Persons Subsequently Found To Have Been In Employment. This Precaution Did Not Apply Hitherto. The Overlap Month Is September 1937. The Figure Without The Change Would Have Been 10.0. Here It Us Given As 9.7. Certain Classes Of Domestic Employments Were Included Beginning In July, 1938. The Overlap Month Is July 1938. The Figure Without The Inclusion Would Have Been 13.1. Here It Is Given As 12.9. Figures Are Exclusive Of Juveniles Under 16 And Persons Insured Under The Agricultural Scheme Who First Became Insurable In September 1934 And May 1936, Repectively.

  • Millions of Persons, Monthly, Not Seasonally Adjusted

    Series Is Presented Here As Three Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1929-1944 (2)--Original Data, 1940-1957 (3)--Original Data, 1947-1966. Unemployment Means The Difference Between The Number Of Persons In The Labor Force And The Number Of Persons Working. Negative Unemployment Arises Beginning June 1947, Figures Are Unrounded. Coal And Steel Strikes Ending In November 1949 Accounted For High Unemployment In October 1949. Also, A Large Number Of Coaal Miners And Steel Workers, Reported As Looking For Work In October, Were Later Classified As "With A Job But Not At Work," Which Led To The Decline In Unemployment In November (See Monthly Labor Review, Bls, December 1949). The Usual Decline In Unemployment From September To October Did Not Occur In 1949. Therefore The Use Of The Low Seasonal Index Distorted The Seasonally Adjusted Figures For October. The Sample Was Changed In January 1954 To 230-Area Sample. Figures For 1953 Were Revised Accordingly From September-December So The Series Is Continuous (For The Unrevised Figures See Current Population Report, P-50, No. 59, 1954 Anual, P. 53). The Sample Changed Again In May 1956 To A 330-Area Sample. Figures On The Old Sample Basis Are-- Original, 2.58; Adjusted, 2.77.

  • Percent, Monthly, Seasonally Adjusted

    These Figures Represent The Number Of Persons Unemployed Less Than Five Weeks Expressed As The Per Cent Of The Total Civilian Labor Force (Derived By NBER). Beginning In 1960 The Data Include Alaska And Hawaii. Population Data From The 1960 Census Were Introduced In April 1962. This Resulted In A Slight Reduction In Labor Force Totals, But None In The Estimate Of Unemployment. Population Data From The 1950 Census Were Used Prior To April 1962. Source: Bureau Of Labor Statistics, "Unemployment And Earnings" And "Monthly Report On The Labor Force, " February 1967, "Civilian Labor Force, " And "Unemployed Less Than Five Weeks" For Data Through 1966 And Subsequent Issues Of The Combined Report Thereafter. Figures May Be Derived From Bls Press Releases On The Employment Situation. This NBER data series m08318 appears on the NBER website in Chapter 8 at http://www.nber.org/databases/macrohistory/contents/chapter08.html. NBER Indicator: m08318

  • Thousands of Persons, Monthly, Seasonally Adjusted

    To obtain estimates of women worker employment, the ratio of weighted women employees to the weighted all employees in the sample is assumed to equal the same ratio in the universe. The current month's women worker ratio, thus, is estimated and then multiplied by the all-employee estimate. The weighted-difference-link-and-taper formula (described in the source) is used to estimate the current month's women worker ratio. This formula adds the change in the matched sample's women worker ratio (the weighted-difference link) to the prior month's estimate, which has been slightly modified to reflect changes in the sample composition (the taper). The series comes from the 'Current Population Survey (Household Survey)' The source code is: LNS13000317
