employment and unemployment

Project Description:

the total number of workers who are officially unemployed consists of noninstitutionalized
people aged 16 or older. such workers are willing and are able to work and are actively looking
for job but have not found a job. to calculate the unemployment rate, the government
determines the percentage of labor force that consists of all noninstitutionalized people aged
16 years or older who either have jobs or are available for and actively seeking employment.
consider a small economy comprising six people. based on the criteria used by the bureau of
labor statistics, classify each person as employed, unemployed, not in the labor force, or not in
the adult population—persons not in the labor force must be part of the adult population.
