    US Bureau Of Labor Statistics
    www.bls.gov

    01. Go to the website,
    02. then go to Database & Tools
    03. Scroll down to Employment
    04. Then scroll a little further to labor force statistics
    05. Go a little to the right and click on TOP PICKS
    06. Then click on the box next to "Unemployment Rate - Civilian Labor Force -LNS14000000"
    07. Scroll down and hit retrieve data
    08. In the From and To catagory change 2002 to 1948
    09. Then click on GO
    10. You now have in front of you every monthly unemployment figure from January 1948 to September 2012.
    11. In order to get the average for each President from January 1948 through September 2012, you must add up all the monthly unemployment rates while each President was in office and divide each figure by the total months in office. That is how the above list was created. The list shows the average unemployment rate during each Presidents time in office. The data is obtained from the Bureau of Labor Statistics monthly unemployment figures that have been published for each month starting in January 1948 through September 2012.
