    People who have been out of work for just shy of nine months on average now and they are no longer looking? Quelle surprise! The random sample can bypass the foreclosed who refuse to answer surveys because they can not afford the per minute charge. Of course they can because BLS has accurate data on this proportion of this growing fraction of the potential labor force that cannot be tracked.

    How many times are you going to repeat this untruth? I've pointed out several times that BLS interviews (conducted by the Census Bureau) are personal visits with telephone interviews optional. If a household in the survey does not wish to do the interview over the phone because of cell phone charges, they can have a personal interview instead, which is what will happen if they don't answer the phone...the Cesnsus interviewer will visit in person to find out why...they need to code the household as to type of non-response: whether the household is no longer a housing unit, whether it's unoccupied, or whether it's a refusal and why.

    Stupid Government Spending does not create jobs, It destroys them.

    [​IMG]

    Democrats are liars & have not created any jobs. Bush & the Republicans were creating real jobs & boosting the economy until the Democrats took control of congress in 2007 & destroyed jobs & the economy. The chart below speaks volumes. Since the Republicans took back the House in 2011 to block Democrats neurotic control of business, jobs are once again on the rise. All the jobs destroyed in this economy happened because of democrats & happened only while they were in power. Now since Republicans took over the House January 2011, America, Jobs & the Economy will rise again.

    Your link makes my computer lock up, but i heard the story on the radio.

    Interesting, isn't it? The population is at its highest in thirty years and the number of Americans working is at its lowest for the same period.

    You'd think that one of the eagle eyed media folks would be trumpeting this as proof that the economy is not the Utopia that the Dems would have us believe and yet, all we hear is that the unemployment rate is down. AGAIN.

    Makes one wonder why the press is called the Liberal press. If it makes the Dems look bad, keep it a secret. If it makes the Reps look bad, make it a banner.
