What is our unemployment and poverty rate?


The latest Census Bureau puts us at 15.1 percent poverty level.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics puts us at 9.1 percent unemployed.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics had us at 9.6 percent for last year.   Since January of 2011 they expanded their data to include people unemployed for up to five years instead of two and our unemployment rate is 9.1 percent?  Our poverty level is a new record high since 1993.  In 1993 our unemployment rate was 6.8 percent  down from 7.4 percent in 1992 with a poverty rate of 14.3, and our poverty rate was 14.4 percent in 1992.   I understand that population increases will effect numbers from 1990's until now.  But here is the breakdown as I see it:

2010-2011
Census poverty level....................15.1%
Unemployment ............................  9.1%

2008-2009
Census poverty level....................14.3%
Unemployment.............................  9.3

How do they contact people who have been unemployed for up to five years?

I guess this is why I will never have a career in statistical analysis.

Living With Lee

So far so good.  Not too much flooding yet but the storm is starting to travel east from Louisiana.  If you can, stay off of HWY 90.  A lot of sand being blown around.  By now I hope everyone has the supplies they need since Lee plans on hanging around until Tuesday.  Good luck everyone and be safe!
