25. Trump sometimes talked about 94 million jobless Americans

Last edited Fri Jan 5, 2018, 01:32 PM - Edit history (2)

(citing the Not In Labor Force number) and said the real unemployment rate is 40% --
Not in Labor Force, Age 16+ https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS15000000

Here is the 11 months (through November) of 2017 (in thousands):

2017 94,366 94,190 94,213 94,375 94,983 94,813 94,657 94,785 94,417 95,385 95,420

Interestingly, its up by 1,054,000 since the inaugural month of January, so you don't hear very much about it from Trump or his Trumpanzees anymore.

I discuss this some more at
https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1017&pid=466755

Here is the official unemployment rate: https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000

And the rates each month of 2016 and 2017:
2016: 4.9 4.9 5.0 5.0 4.7 4.9 4.9 4.9 4.9 4.8 4.6 4.7
2017: 4.8 4.7 4.5 4.4 4.3 4.4 4.3 4.4 4.2 4.1 4.1

(you remember well -- 4.6% and 4.7% in the last two full months of the Obama administration)

Some other stats of interest:

Civilian labor force, 16 and over, thousands, https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11000000

Civilian noninstitutional population, 16 and over, Thousands, https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS10000000

Since January, the Labor Force has grown by only 813,000,
the Not in Labor Force number has grown by 1,054,000
while the civilian non-institutional population (the sum of the above two numbers) has grown by 1,867,000
