Reports & Graphics

Definition

Percentage change in underemployment rate, 2003-2011.

Description

The underemployment rate is a broader measure of unemployment and provides a more comprehensive look at the state of the labor market. In addition to unemployed workers looking for jobs, underemployment includes workers who are working part-time but want to be working full-time, and those who are not actively looking for work but who want a job and have looked for work within the past 12 months.This indicator tracks the change, over time, of the annual underemployment rate.
