Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate criticism of unemployment statistics and to suggest corrections which would tend to correct problems upon which these statistics are criticized. Research materials were used from Forsyth Library, the University of Kansas Library, and the United States Department of Labor. A discussion of the definitions of unemployment used by various government agencies preceded a discussion of the actual collection of labor force data by the Current Population Survey, the Employment Security Programs, and the Employer’s Survey. Results of these collection method were then contrasted and compared. Following this is a discussion of some of the criticisms which are often leveled at this nation’s unemployment statistics. The final chapter deals with each criticism in turn and offers suggestions as to how each situation may be corrected or explains why correction is not possible in cases where this may apply.
